    About Dr. Kocian

    I have a true passion for the field of Criminology, Law, and Society and continually make efforts to expand my knowledge and teaching abilities in all areas of the discipline. I take great pride in formulating honest, caring, and personal relationships with my students. I do my best to assist them with the comprehension of material in class while helping them decide where their vocational path will lead them when they leave Saint Vincent College and how they can best serve God and mankind.

    My relationship with God remains the most important thing in my life and I am grateful to have such wonderful, loving, and supportive family members and friends in close proximity who remind me of His graces and blessings on a continual basis. I enjoy weightlifting, running, swimming, basketball, good movies, and Notre Dame Football.
