Suzanne McHughSuzanne McHughSociology

A teaching assistant in the Sociology department, Suzanne McHugh has demonstrated an ability to perform all of her required tasks skillfully and conscientiously. She has filled in as a lecturer on short notice and continues to be an excellent scholar in her field, as well. The 1998 Towson University graduate was co-author of “Sibling Deviance Revisited: Incorporating Mutual and Unique Friendship Effects” in an upcoming issue of Criminology. She served as president of the Students of Sociology Graduate Organization from 2000-2001 and was the Graduate Student Faculty Representative in 2001-2002.

“Suzanne began her teaching career here as an assistant to faculty on several different courses, and distinguished herself in a variety of ways in carrying out those responsibilities,” wrote Russell A. Ward, professor and chair of the Department of Sociology. “When she then began to teach her own courses, Suzanne’s excellent performance continued, with student evaluations among the very best in the department. It is also particularly noteworthy that Suzanne’s teaching excellence has not been accomplished at the expense of her growing scholarly achievements.”
