Hilliard is a recent graduate from the University of Florida and is currently
pursuing his Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice at the University of North
Florida. The focus of his undergraduate education was primarily in Criminology
and Law with a special interest in human rights. Through volunteering and the
participation of research at the University of Florida, he has become an
elemental contributor in various forms of data pertaining to the criminological
and legal arena. Some of these research experiences include the collection of
information related to jury decision making, criminal perceptions, and criminal
profiling. He has also focused his attention on the art of Classical Studies,
which has provided him with the fundamental knowledge associated with ancient
Greece, Rome, and the Mediterranean culture via languages, art history, ancient
history, archaeology, philosophy, and comparative literature. This has expanded
his education beyond the United States’ Criminal Justice System; consequently,
his credentials are effectively authorized on a global scale.
