ACADEMICSPOTLIGHT Criminal Justice Professor Assists with Autism Education and Awareness Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice Allen Copenhaver uses his education and experience to provide a valuable service to members of the Louisville (Ky.) Metro Police. Earlier this year, Copenhaver assisted the Autism Training Center at the University of Louisville. The center worked with practitioners and community parents to help Louisville police officers to better identify and understand the signs of autism. “I worked to provide them with research and statistics to further their initiative and contributed as an adviser,” said Copenhaver. “It felt great to be able to help out, considering I myself have a son who has been diagnosed with autism.” Copenhaver said that a better understanding of autism is important for everyone. “There is an increasing number of autistic individuals diagnosed across the country every year,” he said. “This initiative is a step in the right direction to help autistic individuals, those in the autism community and law enforcement better understand each other to promote public safety.” Two LWC Faculty Recognized for Outstanding Teaching Two LWC faculty members were honored for being excellent teachers at the college’s annual Honors Convocation Ceremony on April 25. Associate Professor of Journalism David Goguen, top, was named 2016- 17 Teacher of the Year Award, which is given by the LWC Student Government Association based on a popular vote of the undergraduate student body on the A.P.
