Beyond the Criminal Arena: The Justice Studies Program at Winston-Salem State University
Harvey, Lynn K.; Mitchell, Alvin D.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v11 n3 p41-52 2006
The justice studies program at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) is designed to produce a new breed of justice practitioners whose understanding of justice and its administration is broadened to include the political, social, economic, and cultural conditions within which issues of crime and punishment are pursued and addressed. While it covers the bases found in criminal justice programs, justice studies at WSSU goes beyond those basics to prepare students to recognize, analyze, and address issues of justice both within and outside the practice of law enforcement. By connecting Department of Social Sciences faculty and students to the university's research, outreach, and training center, the program also emphasizes the many opportunities and positive outcomes inherent in the university's engagement with the broader community.
