Suthers to teach in the Springs

Posted By on Fri, Jan 15, 2010 at 2:12 PM

While the political season gets heated with the approach of caucuses, primaries and November's general election, many Colorado politicians are furiously splitting time between fundraisers, campaign rallies and whatever else they might have to do to earn a living.

Not so for Attorney General John Suthers, the Republican who's finishing out his first complete term in office with no clear challenger to oppose him (Democrat Dan Slater got into the race briefly last fall before quickly doing an about face).

In that relaxed atmosphere, Suthers, who has taught classes in the past in the Denver area, has accepted an offer to teach a criminal justice class at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.

From a UCCS press release:

Suthers will be a scholar in residence for the UCCS School of Public Affairs. He is the first person to hold the position.

“I am very pleased that our students will have this exceptional opportunity to learn from an instructor with such depth of experience,” Terry Schwartz, associate dean, School of Public Affairs, said. “Attorney General John Suthers’ classroom will offer scholarly rigor informed by a wealth of real-world practical understanding.”

As scholar in residence, Suthers will be the primary instructor for a criminal justice class “Pleas, Trials and Sentences.” The course meets Fridays from 1:40 p.m. to 4:20 p.m. from January 22 to May 14.


The course, apparently, is open to both undergrads and graduate students.
