“Restoring” Justice

Curtin Memorial Library

Investigating Research on Campus continues with the second iROC seminar of the spring semester, presented by Jenifer Lee-Gonyea. Her talk is entitled “Restoring” Justice: The Inclusion of Restorative Justice in Crime-Related Undergraduate Programs.

Restorative justice presents an alternative way of resolving conflicts that gives victims, offenders, and the community a voice in the ultimate resolution to an offense. Jenifer’s presentation will focus on the presence of restorative justice courses in undergraduate crime-related programs. The goal of her research is to understand what types of programs are offering these courses, where the courses are being offered geographically, what type of information is included, and what type of benefit such courses might have for the criminal justice system and society. Might they provide for the possibility of “restoring” justice to all of those involved in crime?

Jenifer Lee-Gonyea is Assistant Professor of Criminology in the Division Social Sciences at MSMC. Her presentation will take place on Thursday, February 21st at 4 pm on the main floor of Curtin Library in Aquinas Hall.

Students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served. Please join us.
