An article co-authored in 2005 by Todd Collins, associate professor of political science and public affairs and director of the WCU Public Policy Institute, for the Maryland Law Review was recently cited in a Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals case.
A published opinion for the case, United States versus Jose Ramon Solis Valdovinos, referenced the article “War on Drugs or a War on Immigrants?: Expanding the Definition of ‘Drug Trafficking’ in Determining Aggravated Felon Status for Noncitizens.”
Richard Bruce, professor emeritus of biology, was bestowed the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists’ 2013 Copeia Best Paper award in herpetology for his article “Size-mediated Tradeoffs in Life-history Traits in Dusky Salamanders.” The article appeared in the society’s scientific journal, Copeia.
Among those Bruce acknowledged in the paper for supporting his research were WCU, Highlands Biological Station and Krista Schmidt, associate professor, research and instruction librarian, and science, technology, engineering and mathematics liaison at Hunter Library.
