Over the years, our wonderful Summer Research Institute participants have provided us with feedback regarding their experiences at the institute.
“Having a group of minority scholars who share, empathize, and appreciate the inequities with being a minority in Academia has been incredible. I am often reminded that I am not going through this alone and that there are a number of intelligent, hard-working, and dedicated scholars who want me to succeed — in other words, my perspective and research are indeed important and valuable to my discipline and field of criminology.”

“I knew that the SRI was outstanding for mentoring, and it presented a great opportunity to work on a project and become embedded within a great network. My mentor greatly improved my writing, thinking, and my presentation of research.”
