Criminal Justice Presentation Series
All Criminal Justice Lectures are available virtually through Zoom.
About the Series
The Criminal Justice Lecture Series and Applied Criminal Justice Presentation Series support our students, faculty, and community by using a virtual space to optimize communication synergies between students, the public, and criminal justice professionals. Both are delivered using easy-to-use platforms that maximize access across demographic divides to serve the larger community.
The Criminal Justice Lecture Series allows students to engage professionals and learn about specific career tracks in the criminal justice system. The format promotes interactions between students and professionals so critical information, internships, and job opportunities can blossom into meaningful social networks. The series seeks to establish lasting connections between Shepherd University, students, the community, and career professionals.
The Applied Criminal Justice Presentation Series provides students with opportunities to spotlight and learn valuable, hands-on skills and information from field professionals. During the presentations, students are exposed to innovations, updates, and the latest concepts being explored in the field. The experiences complement classroom learning while providing additional career networking opportunities.
