James E. Sutton

James Sutton is currently an Associate Professor of Sociology, Chair of the Sociology Department, and Chair of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.  He received his Ph.D. in Sociology from Ohio State University, and his main specialty areas are criminology and criminal justice.  His primary substantive interests include corrections, gangs, violence, and victimization, and he regularly teaches courses that focus on Criminology, Juvenile Delinquency, Penology, and Social Deviance.  As one of just a few criminologists working at a nationally ranked liberal arts college, he is always eager to discuss the importance of building opportunities to engage students in criminology and criminal justice within a liberal arts setting.  As a past recipient of HWS’ Civically Engaged Faculty Member of the Year Award, he can also talk about strategies for engaging students and the on- and off- campus communities in crime and justice topics experientially.  Most generally, he is happy and able to discuss a range of criminology and criminal justice topics with various audiences and campus stakeholders.
