The Criminal Justice Club will be hosting a day dedicated to the field on November 10. The event is not just for Criminal Justice majors, but also for anyone who is interested in learning more about the area of study and its professions.

There are four presenters that will speak at the event,  including a representative from the Pennsylvania State Police, and an F.B.I. agent.

“We want to give students a sense of what people can do with a Criminal Justice degree after graduation.” said Dr. Timothy Holler, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice on campus. “We’re trying to show Criminal Justice majors that there’s [sic] more options outside the policing profession.”

In addition to the lineup of speakers, the movie “The Stanford Prison Experiment,” which chronicles the process and findings of Dr. Philip Zimbardo’s famous psychological prison experiment, will be shown in the chapel at 9:30. The movie is not sponsored by CJ Day, but it could be a good way to end the day and show how psychology and criminal justice work together.

All the presentations will be held in the Chapel between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. For further information contact Dr. Tim Holler at tjh67@pitt.edu or Jessica Carpenter at jvc17@pitt.edu.


 

The speaker schedule for CJ day is as follows: Presentation One at 11 a.m. – Adelphoi Village in Latrobe, a non-profit organization that brings quality services and resources, such as group homes and treatment centers, to people of the area.

Presentation Two at 1 p.m. – Westmoreland County Juvenile Probation Offices, discussing the county’s juvenile system.

Presentation Three at 3 p.m. – F.B.I. Agent Brad Orisini, discussing human trafficking.
