ASU scholarship created by former school director
As Scott Decker’s academic career developed as a teacher and administrator, he discovered that he preferred creating things to overseeing them.
He and his wife chose to support a scholarship for criminology and criminal justice students at Arizona State University in large part because of this discovery. It also clarifies why he initially chose to leave for ASU eighteen years ago from the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL), where he had served as the department chair of criminology and criminal justice for many years.
“My experience in St. Louis taught me that I was a builder, not a manager,” Decker remarked. It inspired me to come to ASU in order to establish a world-class program in criminal justice and criminology. The curriculum would offer excellent master’s, doctoral, and undergraduate education.
Decker, who is currently an emeritus professor at ASU Foundation, was the institution’s inaugural director from 2006 to 2014. The ASU PhD program in criminology and criminal justice was established in 2008 under Decker’s direction, and this year marks its 15th anniversary.
Decker claimed that the Decker Family Scholarship was inspired by his experiences as a UMSL undergraduate and then as department chair. Juniors and seniors who want to work in criminal justice, law enforcement, probation and parole, correctional, juvenile justice, or other public service capacities are welcome to apply.
One fall semester, Decker inquired about conducting interviews inside jails from his criminology professor at DePauw University in Indiana, where he was an undergraduate. Decker was invited to conduct interviews with inmates with his professor, who informed him that interviews took place on Thursday afternoons.
“At first, I paid attention and took note. The professor then stated, “If you want to talk to some of these people on your own, that’s good,” Decker claimed. Decker also recalled playing baseball games against the prison officials with the men who were incarcerated. “Every time, we prevailed.”
Decker’s professor assigned him to observe in the Indiana Boys School, a juvenile detention facility, in January.
“I gained more knowledge via observation than from data and interviews. That was really helpful to me in understanding the connection between the academic component of punishment and the jail and rehabilitation I saw in the facility,” the man stated.
Decker visited twenty-seven jails in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Europe during his tenure.
“It improved what I did as a researcher and was a part of my continuing education,” he stated.
His tenure as the department chair at UMSL laid the groundwork for the significant modifications made to ASU’s criminology and criminal justice program. Two years after his arrival, the ASU doctorate program was launched, supported by a significant group of new faculty members.
Decker explained that he and his spouse, JoAnn, are both graduates of public universities (he met JoAnn at Florida State University, where he earned both his master’s and doctoral degrees), and they wanted to support students in finding internships and service learning opportunities. Under the direction of Beth Huebner, the Watts Endowed Professor for Public Safety, the school’s current director, this and a robust ongoing inclusion drive continue to be priorities.
