Ketchikan faculty and staff achievements
On March 27, Bill Urquhart presented a formal research presentation in Portland, Oregon at the annual meeting of the Pacific Sociological Association. His presentation was titled "Educational Inequality and Early Childhood Ability in School." Also, one of Dr. Urquhart’s BLA students, Wesley Haslam, presented research at the same meeting that he completed in a Fall 2013 sociology independent study. His presentation was "Anti-Criminogenic Effects of Immigrant Neighborhoods."
