Our graduate-student led Engaging in Current Events as Criminologists (ECEC) Speaker Series is back with four new sessions for Spring 2019.
This year's series will broadly focus on community reentry for persons who were formerly incarcerated. Individual sessions will discuss certain aspects of community reentry, such as the experiences of formerly incarcerated individuals and reentry service providers, academic perspectives on reentry and how to translate research on reentry into policy. All event dates are below. For more details on each topic, please view the flyer.
