Philip Reichel

Philip Reichel received his M.A. and Ph.D. in Sociology from Kansas State University. After working for a few years as a counselor at the Nebraska Correctional Complex in Lincoln, he decided teaching was more to his liking and accepted a position at Augusta College (now Augusta State University) in Augusta, Georgia. In 1983 he accepted a position at the University of Northern Colorado and has been here since that Fall semester. During his 40 years in academia, Dr. Reichel has received awards for his teaching, advising, service, and scholarship. Especially notable among those were the UNC Distinguished Scholar award in 2003 and his selection in 2005 by the student council as Advisor of the Year. He is the author of Comparative Criminal Justice Systems: A Topical Approach (2013), coeditor (with John Winterdyk and Benjamin Perrin) of Human Trafficking: Exploring the International Nature, Concerns, and Complexities (2012), coauthor (with Leanne Alarid) of Corrections (2013), coeditor (with Jay Albanese) of the Handbook of Transnational Crime and Justice (forthcoming); and has authored or co-authored more than thirty articles and book chapters.
