POLITICAL SCIENCE DEPARTMENT TO HOST 8TH ANNUAL CRIMINAL JUSTICE ROUNDTABLE

The political science department is set to host a series of roundtable discussions with faculty and students on various subjects.

On Feb. 22, Feb. 29, March 21 and March 28, faculty and students will present research for discussion and review.  The one hour discussions will start at noon in Bluford Library, Room 258.  The annual event is an important aspect of the department’s commitment to undergraduate and faculty research.  Research is a fundamental component of the Criminal Justice program’s curriculum. The mission of the program is to foster leadership, encourage research and graduate study and to impact public policy.

Past roundtables have involved spirited debate and this year is gearing up for more of the same. This year’s topics include “Fletcher v. Lamone; The Political Impact of Prison Gerrymandering” “Small States and the WTO: An analysis of the Antiqua-US Internet Gambling Dispute,” and discussions led by a student and faculty member.

Topics will be presented by Professor James P. Mayes, Dr. Sarita Jackson, Dr. Daniel White, a student from the Department of Political Science & Criminal Justice. The community is encouraged to attend.
