Florida State University’s College of Criminology & Criminal Justice is pleased to congratulate Associate Professor Marin R. Wenger, who was recently honored by the University with an Undergraduate Teaching Award for Outstanding Teaching in the Major.

Dr. Wenger was one of only 10 Florida State University faculty members to receive the award for the 2022-2023 academic year award.

The University Teaching Awards program recognizes faculty for excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching. This is a student-oriented award with nominations submitted by students and alums. Recipients must be outstanding in the many aspects of teaching which contribute to a successful learning experience.

FSU recognized Dr Wegner previously for her outstanding teaching and mentoring, receiving nominations for teaching awards from 2019 to 2022. In 2020, the American Society of Criminology Division of Communities and Place presented her with the Robert J. Bursik Junior Scholar Award.

Dr. Wenger has been a Professor at the College since receiving her Ph.D. in Sociology from The Pennsylvania State University in 2016. She also serves as a Faculty Affiliate for the Hate Crime Research & Policy Institute, a branch of the College's Center for Criminology and Public Policy Research.

Her research focuses on stratification, communities & crime, deviance, hate crime, racial disparity, and quantitative methods.  

Her publications have appeared in Social Problems, Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency, Criminal Justice & Behavior, Justice Quarterly, Social Science Research, and Law and Human Behavior, among others.

The College congratulates Dr. Wenger on this well-deserved honor along with her exceptional work in the discipline.
