The DeSales Forensic Forum, co-sponsored by the DeSales University Criminal Justice and Psychology Departments, has been an ongoing community educational resource since 2001. Prominent scientists established the forum to provide students with exposure to diverse areas of forensics and offers presentations. It has featured speakers of international renown, such as forensic artist Frank Bender, former FBI profiler Gregg McCary, law professor James E. Starrs, and forensic anthropologist, Dr. Tom Crist.
Dr. Katherine Ramsland, assistant professor of forensic psychology at DeSales, and an expert in forensic psychology and serial killers, coordinates the programs for the DeSales Forensic Forum. She has written numerous published books, including "The Unkown Darkness: Profiling Predators Among Us," which she co-authored with FBI veteran profiler Greg McCary. Ramsland also has been consulted by national media on forensic issues and has appeared on the Today Show, National Public Radio, and on cable programs, including Discovery, the Learning Channel, the Women's Entertainment Network and AMC.
