Check out a few pictures from the student presentation, “Investigating the Justice System Using a Feminist Approach,” that was part of the Global Justice Series in May, 2013. 

 


 

Abby McCartney is a student at CUC who recently visited the Salvation Army in Chicago. Here are her thoughts on the visit:

"Our class trip to the Salvation Army broadened my knowledge to include the healing sector; one that is rarely present in common discourse about the corrections system. The learning experience presented another dimension to a seemingly hopeless situation, allowing us to critically analyze it and continue to create positive change." 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Shayna Sanders Criminal Justice Major Shayna Sanders is a criminal justice major and joined a recent visit to the Cook County Jail. Here are her thoughts on the visit:

"This experience allowed me to discard prior assumptions and experience first-hand what really transpires at Cook County Jail. I recommend taking Sociology of Corrections so that you can also gain knowledge about how the prison system operates and its effect on society."
