Why we need your support
The mission of the Division of Criminal Justice is to prepare the leaders of tomorrow’s criminal justice community to make positive decisions. Through a multi-disciplinary curriculum and a faculty with diverse expertise, experiences and perspectives, students are exposed to the theories, applications and ethics related to crime and justice. In today’s increasingly changing justice field, the Division strives to see beyond the prevailing justice paradigm and develop students who will be competitive in a global marketplace of knowledge and career. We are committed to graduating students who are critical thinkers, strong writers and who will be active members of an engaged citizenry.
