COSS Graduate Student Success
Clayton Drummond - “Clayton graduated from UWG with his BS in Criminology in December 2017, and began the Criminology MA Program the following January. He is an exceptional student who is studious, courteous, and respectful. He excels in his coursework and research as he is preparing to enter a doctoral program upon graduating with his master’s degree.
Clayton’s research includes looking at wrongful convictions due to misconduct by criminal justice professionals. He presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Criminology in November 2018 on currently known cases of wrongful convictions by official misconduct from the National Registry of Exonerations.
Most recently, Clayton presented his research at the Southern Criminal Justice Association annual meeting where he presented preliminary results from his master’s thesis. Specifically, his analyses include a compilation of state statutes on official misconduct and discussion on a model statute. His final analyses will be presented in March 2020 when he travels to San Antonio, TX for the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences annual meeting.
In addition to his research and coursework, Clayton also interns with the Georgia Criminal Justice Coordinating Council and serves as the graduate student representative of the Graduate Programs Committee of the Faculty Senate.”
