The Institute

Institute of Global Security and Comparative Justice Systems

College of Liberal Arts & College of Extended Learning Criminal Justice Program

The goal of the Institute is to provide faculty, academics, practitioners, professionals, community members, undergraduate students and graduate students the opportunity to expand their knowledge and understanding of the global community with emphasis on global security and comparative justice systems. It is clear knowledge and understanding of global security issues and international justice systems is especially important to our students and communities. The opportunity to gain a view of the international community is especially important for our students who are first generation college and graduate students.

Beginnings

The formative ideas for the Institute developed from conversations over two years among Dean Eloy Chavez, Chair John Clark, Dr. Raymond Hasselman, and Dr. James Hall. The focus was on activities related to Global Security and Comparative Justice. Dr. Hasselman, Dr. Hall, and Dr. Doyle began planning meetings during the spring and summer of 2020. Since the pandemic curtailed many activities, including travel, it was decided that a six-part webinar series on the pandemic would be the first project of the Institute. The webinar series occurred during the fall of 2020. It was a huge success. 

Sponsorship

The Institute is a project sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Extended Learning, and the Department of Criminology, Justice Studies, and Global Security.

Comments By Dr. Hasselman

This morning I watched a webinar that was broadcast from Europe on cybercrime investigations and evidence. There is little doubt that globally cybercrime is a major issue. For anyone planning a career in law enforcement, law, homeland security, emergency management, and other related fields knowledge about cybercrime and computer systems will be an asset. Obtaining a major, minor, certificate, or even a few courses in this area may be a plus to any law enforcement career.

Last evening, I attended a presentation by a recruiter for the Central Intelligence Agency. There are many different job opportunities in the agency from analyst to truck driving. While the application process is very lengthy and difficult, there are things a person can do to increase the odds of getting an offer among the many thousands of applicants each year. 

He stressed that a high GPA is very important. While a specific major is not required, it is important to obtain a major in a field that will challenge you and develops your writing and critical thinking skills. Excellent writing skills that include the ability to structure, make and defend an argument are important.

Last evening, I attended a presentation by a recruiter for the Central Intelligence Agency.

He suggested some experience abroad is helpful. He did not make any specific recommendation of any specific type of travel or experience abroad. 

If you are looking for an experience abroad that provides a training seminar in security and terrorism, the Institute in conjunction with Security Solutions International is offering a training seminar on terrorism and security in the State of Israel. There is more information on this below.

To finish the second year of webinars, the Institute will offer on April 6 and 20 a webinar series on Climate Change and Global Security. Mark the dates on your calendar and stay tuned for further information.
