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.
