News and Upcoming Events
In Memory of Robbin Ogle (1960-2012)
Robbin Ogle, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO), passed away unexpectedly on July 9, 2012 at the age of 51. Robbin was a well-respected researcher and colleague, a dedicated mentor, and a compassionate and caring person who will be greatly missed. Ogle joined the faculty at UNO in 1995 after receiving two PhDs in both Criminal Justice and Women’s Studies from Penn State University. She was a gifted teacher and a patient and tireless mentor dedicated to furthering the best interests of her students both inside and outside of the classroom. Her teaching and research focused primarily on correctional organizations and the intersection between gender and crime. She was instrumental in developing new perspectives on crime that bettered our understanding of gender and violence. She authored/co-authored numerous journal articles and book chapters, and in 2002, she published the book Self-Defense and Battered Women Who Kill: A New Framework, with her co-author Susan Jacobs.
