Alumni Mark SCJ’s 50th With Gifts

Four School of Criminal Justice alumni – including Dean and Distinguished Professor William Alex Pridemore, Ph.D.’02 – are commemorating the 50th anniversary of the school’s founding with gifts of at least $100,000.

  • Pridemore’s $100,000 planned gift will augment the SCJ Dean’s Excellence Fund. It will create an endowment to allow future deans to support initiatives and opportunities that will enrich the intellectual life of the school. 
  • Peter Stevens, M.A.’83, LEED AP and president of JCJ Architecture in Hartford, Conn., has established a fellowship that will enable SCJ to recruit and  support outstanding graduate students.
  • Larry J. Siegel, M.A.’70, Ph.D.’74, and The Darald and Julie Libby Foundation established a fellowship in Siegel’s name. 

As noted in the Spring 2018 UAlbany, former dean and Distinguished Professor Alan Lizotte and his wife, Lisa Jackson, have earmarked their support for graduate students.
