Professor of Sociology
Alan Mock uses his own diverse interests to help students open doors to new experiences and viewpoints. A member of Lakeland's faculty since 1993, Dr. Mock launched the college's criminal justice program in the late 1990s, and today it enrolls 50-70 majors. He has served as chair of the Social Science Division and was instrumental in the development and implementation of the college's Institutional Review Board, which paves the way for students to conduct meaningful and ethical research. He has served on every college committee but one, and has taught 22 different courses, both inside and outside of his discipline. He is an accomplished musician and plays mandolin, banjo-mandolin and sings vocals for Michael Lee Ammons and the Water Street Hot Shots, a popular old blues combo which performs throughout the Midwest.
