Practicing good hand-washing is one of a few simple and effective ways to remain healthy during the COVID-19 outbreak. Custodial staff thoroughly clean and disinfect the campus after students are moved to online classes only during the COVID-19 outbreak.

My dogs when they discovered me working in an office upstairs. Titled, “Why are you hiding from us?”

The following is in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. As I was sent home from MSSU, I began to reminisce about things used to be when I was younger. When things weren't as chaotic as what they are today. The following paintings capture some of the things from my early childhood and how they affected then and now.

Dr. Timothy Wilson - Department of Criminal Justice
This is a video I produced myself that I uploaded to my course sites when the announcement was made that we were suspending on ground classes and moving to all online classes. I really wanted to let my students know as personally as I could what the plan was moving forward and expressing my disappointment with the need to make this move. I was hoping this would help ease some of the stress that students were likely feeling when they heard the news. This was a video that was only uploaded to my classes for the Spring 2020 semester and will not be used in future classes.
