Each year, SPEA IUPUI awards a full-time faculty member the IU Trustees Teaching Award for their positive impact on learning. Assistant Professor Eric Grommon, who joined SPEA in 2012, was selected for the annual award.
In addition to teaching both graduate and undergraduate criminal justice courses, Grommon collaborates with students on a range of community-based projects.
