Dr. Roslyn Muraskin (Roz as we all called her) was a legendary national scholar who ignited others to excel in the discipline of criminal justice. Roz was a competent, consistent, and reliable colleague with an unprecedented commitment to work. She was a tower of strength and wisdom, and teaching was her passion. As an outstanding mentor, Roz successfully mentored students and junior faculty members, of various races, genders, cultures, and ethnicities. She was a transformational leader for women’s rights who hosted numerous workshops, lectures, forums, and networking opportunities on pay equity, sex discrimination, health and wellness, and financial investment strategies. Extending her work beyond the academy into the community, she founded the Long Island Women’s Institute (LIWI) in 1991 to encourage women to become successful leaders and to break the proverbial “glass ceiling.” Through both her scholarship and teaching, Roz made significant contributions to the disciplines of criminal justice and criminology. These contributions are nationally recognized and widely appreciated. The ramifications of her numerous publications are still felt today among young scholars. Her gifts as a teacher have been outstanding, and her abilities as a scholar have been remarkable. For these, she received numerous awards. Roz Muraskin was a person endowed with a sound judgment and exemplifies the highest ideals and standards of a professional. Her life symbolizes professional excellence and brilliance. Because of these qualities, each encounter with her strengthens the characters of others and enriches their experiences. All those individuals who have had the privilege and honor of working with her and learning from her will continue to remember her for her professional sacrifice, vision, and lifetime achievements. She was a cherished colleague, a scholar, and friend who is missed by many, but will never be forgotten by those who were fortunate enough to have known her. We miss her energy, creativity, and charismatic personality. On a personal level, she was incredibly kind, and I feel honored to have been one of the many beneficiaries of her generosity of spirit. So I thank
