Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin University’s School of Criminal Justice and Social Sciences is set to host its Distinguished Lecture Series on Tuesday, April 4 at 7 p.m. with Ariana Seanor as the evening’s speaker. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Marion Center.

Seanor, a Tiffin University alumna, is a United States Capitol police officer currently serving in Washington D.C. She was recently honored with the Congressional Gold Medal Award for her service to the country during the insurrectionist attack on the U.S. Capitol building on January 6, 2021.

The Distinguished Lecture Series was initiated in 2017 by Dr. Elizabeth Athaide-Victor, a TU Professor of Psychology and Forensic Psychology, as part of her psychology of violence and aggression class. The series seeks to enlighten students on how factors such as society, culture, mental illness, and others can instigate violence and how to prevent it.

“Tiffin University has always turned out excellent professionals,” said Victor. “We are delighted to have our alum who is with the D.C. Capital police and received the Congressional Medal of Honor for her efforts on January 6. Please come and hear her compelling story.”

For more information about the event, please contact Dr. Elizabeth Athaide-Victor at
