Global Justice

Global Justice is a learning community comprised of 25 first year students who share common interests, take classes together, live in the same dorm and participate in activities together throughout the year. No matter how ready you think you are, adjusting to college life can be a challenge. By joining Global Justice, you have preferential room assignments in McMindes Hall and have an earlier move-in time! You will also take classes with fellow members each semester that focus on justice studies. This will make studying easier with ready-made study groups, and you'll be able to get to know our faculty outside of the classroom.

The Global Justice learning community explores those issues related to justice within the context of a global society. In particular, students will learn about not only the US justice system but also other prominent systems around the world. Additionally, students will be exposed to the rapidly changing aspects of these systems due to the development of technology, terrorism, and global values. Finally, it is expected that students will develop both an academic skill set and valuable social skills to promote future success in justice.

Signature co-curricular activity: Criminal Justice Leadership Summit in Washington D.C. and a presentation by the nationally known expert on cybercrime. Other activities include movie nights, pizza parties, and bowling.
