Centers, Training, Technical Assistance

University Engagement refers to the linkage of university knowledge and resources with the community in order to address critical societal issues and contribute to the public good. The School of Criminal Justice engages in a wide variety of research-based training and technical assistance activities intended to address critical crime and justice problems. These activities involve interaction with local communities, criminal justice agencies, and the private sector in the U.S. as well across the globe.
