Annie ButlerThe MSU Denver faculty brain trust reaches almost every corner of the academic spectrum, and we are always proud to see Roadrunners sharing their knowledge. Each month, the Early Bird highlights a few faculty members who have served as subject-matter experts on timely news topics – providing dynamic perspectives on critical issues.

Here’s a sampling from November:

Annie Butler, chair and professor of human services, was interviewed by Fox31 on Nov. 27 about the possibility of a supervised-injection center being established in Denver in an effort to lower drug overdoses.

Darrin Duber-Smith, senior lecturer of marketing, and Steve Beaty, professor of mathematics and computer sciences, were interviewed by Denver7 on Nov. 26 about how companies are using a secret scoring system to rank customers.

Stacey Hervey, associate professor of criminal justice and criminology, was interviewed by the Washington Post on Nov. 25 about the rise of right-wing violence based on Washington Post analysis of global terrorism data.

Matthew Makley, professor of history, interviewed with Fox31 on Nov. 19 about a petition put forth to change the name of Mount Evans because of Colorado’s second Gov. John Evans’ historical apathy and disregard for the infamous Sand Creek Massacre.

Stephen Leonard, professor of history, interviewed with the Pueblo Chieftain on Nov. 4 about former Colorado Gov. Edwin “Big Ed” Johnson declaring martial law along the New Mexico border, banning poor Mexican people from entry into the state.

Haley Kline, initiatives manager for the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, talked with WalletHub about student credit cards dos and don'ts.
