Whitfield Center for Christian Leadership
Professor Alan Fix began teaching at CSU in the fall semester of 2008. He earned his B.A. from Indiana University and his M.A. from Boston University; both of his degrees are in Criminal Justice.
Prior to joining the faculty at CSU, Fix served 29 years as the State Conservation Officer at the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. He also owned of a private security company.
In his Criminal Justice courses, Fix finds the “getting dirty” technique to be both helpful and unique. He always attempts to bring real world experiences to his students and designs his courses so that students “not only learn, but feel.” Professor Fix’s students learn from invited guest speakers, they process crime scenes in his CSI courses, and they volunteer for active shooter training at the Charleston Coliseum.
Fix is certified in a wide range of areas from Forensics through Drug Recognition, from Interview and Interrogation, Firearms Expert and Environmental Crimes Investigator. He has taught at elementary schools, colleges, and at police academies.
Fix is currently the coordinator of the Criminal Justice internship program and has students interning at both the federal, state, and local levels in all three branches of the criminal justice system. He is the academic advisor for the American Criminal Justice Association (Lambda Alpha Epsilon). He earned the 2015 Excellence in Teaching Award.
