Undergrad wins Upper Division Writing Award

May 2017

Hayden Thomas Sugg, a criminology, law and society undergraduate, has won a 2016-17 Upper Division Writing Award.

The UCI Office of the Campus Writing Coordinator issues awards for excellent academic writing in three categories: humanities and arts, social sciences, and science and technology. Sugg won in the social sciences category for his paper "Legal Financial Obligations in the United States Criminal Justice System: A Mechanism of Social Control," which he wrote under the guidance of Criminology, Law and Society Professor Mona Lynch.

The award honors both the student and the instructor who assigned the paper. The joint student-instructor submission must include the assignment, along with an evaluative statement from the instructor describing the strengths of the paper.
