Criminology and Corrections Programs: A Study of the Issues.
Joint Commission on Correctional Manpower and Training, Washington, DC.
The purpose of the seminar was to explore the problems of programs in criminology and corrections in institutions of higher education. In "Issues for the Seminar" by John J. Galvin, the following are some of the proposals offered for consideration: (1) reaching of some practical agreement concerning categories and responsibility levels of work as related to curricula, (2) realistic assessment of what is possible in the area of employment standards, (3) interaction between universities and the service field, (4) liaison between the university department offering the corrections program and university departments offering related services, (5) massive financial support, and (6) avoidance of policies which would lock out individuals who formerly lacked opportunity to acquire credentials. Other papers include: (1) "Higher Education Programs in Criminology and Corrections" by Loren Karacki and John J. Galvin, (2) "Content of the Curriculum and Its Relevance for Correctional Programs" by Peter P. Lejins, (3) "Universities and the Field of Practice in Corrections" by Vernon B. Fox, and (4) "The Prestige of Corrections Curricula" by T. C. Esselstyn. Discussion from the floor relating to problems of concern to all correction and criminology programs is also reported. (JK)
