A Call for Restorative Justice in Higher Education Judicial Affairs
Clark, Karen L.
College Student Journal, v48 n4 p707-715 Win 2014
This paper aims to provide support for post-secondary institutions' exploring and implementing restorative justice in their judicial practices. Although restorative principles have been employed successfully across the globe in criminal proceedings and K-12 education, most colleges and universities have not yet embraced this practice. By exploring the limited literature and research on restorative justice, this paper demonstrates the benefits of restorative discipline to the campus community, to the hegemonic male culture, and to student development. It will also present general strategies for implementing restorative justice on college campuses. There are very few articles exploring the benefits of restorative justice in higher education. This paper fills that gap.
