Dr. Robert Bing, Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice, has edited and published, Race, Crime and the Media (McGraw-Hill, 2010). This study examines how media portrayals of crime and stereotypes of minorities not only distort public perceptions of crime, but also politicizes public policy in a manner that continues the profiling of minorities and the historic portrayal of whites as the victims of crime.

Dr. W. Marvin Dulaney, Department of History, was recognized by UTA's Division of Student Affairs as a "Faculty/Staff Friend" and by the Women of the NAACP UTA Student Chapter with a "Distinguished Faculty Award."
