Crosby Hipes, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Criminal Justice
304.929.1315 Classroom Building, Room 101C

I began at WVU Tech in the Fall 2018, and received a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland in 2016. My expertise and research background are on stigmatized populations and inequality. At WVU Tech, I have earned two competitive system-wide fellowships: the IDEA Teaching Fellowship, and the Bridge Faculty Research Fellowship. Currently, my research is focused on public perceptions of drug offenders and formerly incarcerated people. Past research has focused on other stigmatized groups, such as military veterans and people with mental illnesses. My work has appeared in Social Science Research, Sociological Forum, Society & Mental Health, Armed Forces & Society, the TRAILs social science teaching repository, and the book Unequals focused on status and inequality.
