Dr. Joongyeup Lee, assistant professor of criminal justice in the Penn State Harrisburg School of Public Affairs, focuses his research on why criminals and police do what they do. His recent studies look at psychological dynamics of juvenile recidivism, situational weapon use in domestic violence, and police decision making.

In graduate school, Dr. Kimberly A. Schreck met a 14-year-old boy with autism who changed her life.

The boy didn’t just sleepwalk – he threw furniture out of second floor windows while sleeping. Schreck began wondering whether the boy’s sleep deprivation contributed to his aggression.

“Nobody had ever looked at that,” said Schreck, now professor of psychology and program chair of social sciences and psychology at Penn State Harrisburg.

Her graduate school advisor said, “You’ll spend your career working on this.” He was right.

Local high school students had a chance this summer to do the type of cutting edge research at Penn State Harrisburg that would be impossible in a high school classroom.

For some, it could be a life changing event leading them into one of the STEM disciplines that are becoming increasingly important in today's job market.

Marques Paige said he was a terrible student in high school, and he soon discovered that the nursing program he tried at a community college was not for him.

But when Marques started at Penn State Harrisburg, with a tentative major in communications, he began to thrive. He graduated on May 4, one of 130 students in Penn State Harrisburg’s Capital College Honors Program out of the school’s more than 4,200-member student body.
