Dr. Natasha Frost, Professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, is the 2020 recipient of the American Society of Criminology’s Hebert Bloch Award. The Herbert Bloch Award recognizes outstanding service contributions to the ASC and to the professional interests of criminology.
Natasha’s overwhelming dedication to the field, her university, and the community is a great representation of the Herbert Bloch award and its recognition of outstanding service contributions to the American Society of Criminology and to the professional interests of criminology. Natasha has never shied away from service no matter how intensive her other obligations became. From 2016 to 2017, for example, she simultaneously worked as Associate Dean of Graduate Education, lead two NIJ-funded projects, and served as: Executive Counselor on the ASC’s Executive Board, Chair of the DCS, Chair of the ASC’s National Policy Committee, and the ASC Representative to the CJRA. Natasha’s ability to produce tremendous scholarly contributions while still dedicating time to high-impact service opportunities highlights her genuine desire to serve.
In addition to Natasha’s contributions to the ASC and the field of criminology, she has also tirelessly served the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice and College of Social Sciences and Humanities at Northeastern University. In her 15 years at Northeastern, Natasha has served on an impressive 21 committees (many of which she was involved with for numerous years), from search committees to award selection committees to curriculum and bylaw committees. Moreover, Natasha’s commitment to service has inspired her current and former students to take a similarly active role in service.
The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice is thrilled to congratulate Natasha Frost for her well-deserved recognition!
