Forensics at work for EKU

Two juniors (Rebecca Seitz and Nina Salazar) in the forensic science program are working with faculty member Barbara Wheeler to help document items within Elmwood estate which was acquired by EKU in 2011.

Discovery Canada at EKU

Discovery Canada was at EKU to film a piece for their show, Daily Planet. Barbara Wheeler (Forensic Science program, Dept. of Chemistry) and Tom Thurman (Dept. of Safety, Security and Management) were interviewed and filmed in the microscopy and instrument labs in the New Science Building. Tom spoke about bomb investigations and the collection of evidence.

Our Facilities

The Forensic Science program's location is in the newly constructed Science Building which offers state of the art teaching space, lab space, and equipment.  The building houses the Departments of Chemistry, Physics, Science Education, and the Environmental Research Institute.

Now accepting applications for the ForSci Living Learning Community

A new Living Learning Community, LLC, for forensic science majors is coming to EKU this fall. The ForSci LLC has been developed in partnership with the faculty in the forensic science program and EKU Housing. We have planned many events in the coming academic year and we encourage all sophomore and upper division majors to join us.

Alumni Spotlight: Mollie Ervin

The EKU Forensic Science Program gets to visit with their alumni from time to time.  This time we ran into Mollie Ervin that graduated from the program in 2007.  She is now working with the Ohio Division of the State Fire Marshal’s Forensic Lab.  Mollie was kind enough to give us a peek into her day-to-day duties:

You are invited: Crime Scene House

You are invited to tour the Crime Scene House used by the Forensic Science Program in their senior capstone course. Activities include mock scenes and Halloween based food. This is a fun event meant to be more educational than scary. Everyone is invited.

Faculty Write Forensic Textbook

Two faculty members in EKU's forensic science program have written a textbook on forensic microscopy - the first such book written specifically for forensic educational programs.
