Alumni: Mikel Longman Returns to Arizona as Top Cop for Community Colleges

August 14, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

By Doug Carroll  GCU News Bureau Imagine being police chief of a city of 275,000. Pretty big job, right? Now imagine that those people aren’t all in one place. In fact, they’re scattered in nearly a dozen locations over 9,000 square miles. But you’re still responsible for their safety. The scenario describes what Mikel Longman does every day. As chief of police and director of public safety for the Maricopa Community Colleges in metropolitan Phoenix, he oversees 10 campuses populated by 265,000 students and more than 10,000 employees. Longman, 58, a graduate of GCU with a bachelor’s degree in public safety administration, has been on the job since January of 2012. Although he served for 34 years in a variety of police positions in Arizona, it was a two-year stint as police chief for the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, Colo., that best prepared him for his current post. “Collegiate policing is a unique discipline,” says Longman, a Tempe native who couldn’t pass up a chance to move home with his wife and be closer to their seven grandchildren. “With this, a community policing orientation is your bread and butter, and a college or university is a community unto […]

Summer Cancer-Campers Enjoy Break at GCU

June 07, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

A group of 12 children from the American Cancer Society’s Camp Sunrise summer program joined GCU’s Jose Moreno and Sussely Morales for basketball, bowling, and other events on campus as part of a field trip to take their minds off the hospital-related realities waiting at home. Led by volunteers, the children ages 3-7 included a few who’ve undergone cancer treatments at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and other Valley healthcare centers. Other children on the field trip have siblings impacted by childhood cancer. For many children, seeing a brother or sister struggling through treatments can be stressful and confusing. Camp Sunrise aims to give them a place to be kids and connect with other youngsters going through similar experiences. GCU is committed to assisting community organizations focused on fighting childhood cancer. In March, the second Run to Fight Children’s Cancer raised $40,000 for the non-profit Children’s Cancer Network. — by Michael Ferraresi/photo by Jose Moreno
