Faculty Present at American Society of Criminology Annual Conference

 
 

 

 

Updated: 03-11-2014

 

Lana McDowell, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, presented a paper entitled, "University Public Safety Officers' Perceptions of Restorative Justice Concepts."  The paper focused on perceptions of university police officers regarding restorative justice concepts. Variables included victim, offender and community needs, harms and mindfulness. The author considered whether officers hold a perceived sense of value and approachability by students and employees. Dr. McDowell also focused on officer perceptions, individual practices during fieldwork and whether perceptions differ between individual officer and departmental actions.

Charles Ubah, Ph.D., Professor of Criminal Justice, presented a paper titled "A Critical Look at Controversial Issues in Corrections Invigorated: Lessons for 21st Century Corrections Policy." In his paper, Dr. Ubah explored the importance of addressing offender rehabilitation.  His work argues that, in addition to offender recidivism rate, adequate attention should be given to other important considerations like academic background, employment signaling, institutional function and social values of prison-based education programs.
