Meda Chesney-Lind, a long-time League member, recently was awarded the University of Hawaii Regents' Medal for Excellence for her work on women and crime. Her research delves into several disciplines, including criminology, women's studies, sociology psychology and law. According to one nominator, "She has set the agenda for others working in the field of female delinquency."

In 1992, Lind also: received two of the most prestigious honors for outstanding contributions to criminology: the American Society of Criminology's Michael J. Hindelang Award and the Western Society of Criminology's Paul Tappan Award. She has published more than 50, monographs and papers and co-authored, with Randall G. Shelden, the first comprehensive book since the 1950s on female, delinquency, Girls, Delinquency and Juvenile Justice.

Lind is the eighth junior researcher to be honored by the university since 1985, and one of only seven faculty members who is a two-time research honoree. The Honolulu Star-Bulletin called her one of the "Ten who Made. A Difference in 1987" for her work in victim advocacy.
