As the Fall of 2023 begins, we at the Criminal Justice Research Center are excited
and eager to begin another academic year. We have many exciting things happening this fall. First, we put together a vibrant speaker series with the Department of Sociology and Criminology, with four speakers this fall. The fall slate of speakers features two Ph.D. alumni of the Penn State Criminology Program: Chris Schreck and Amy Anderson. Second, we were very pleased with the Career Expo with the Department of Sociology and Criminology on September 21. This Career Expo was even bigger and better than last year’s successful event. Third, our staff and faculty affiliates are hard at work on a wide variety of research projects and funding proposals that should yield important social scientific knowledge as well as criminal justice policy guidance. Finally, we are very happy that in a time of budget constraints, the College of the Liberal Arts has continued to support the CJRC at the same level as the previous year. This support will allow the CJRC to continue to be a resource for faculty and the criminal justice policy community. We wish everyone a happy, healthy, and productive academic year!
