Dean’s Message

Camille Gibson
Interim Dean and Executive Director, Texas Juvenile Crime Prevention Center

The College of Juvenile Justice and Psychology, which includes the Texas Juvenile Crime Prevention Center is looking forward to a vibrant and productive year. We continue with our work of educating students within and without the classroom to be change agents by their work ethic and excellence in leadership and service. To this end, we offer quality instruction in a context where faculty, staff and students strive for excellence, all within a milieu of care in keeping with the traditions of HBCUs.

We labor to nurture the passion that many of our students bring with them, a desire to make a substantial positive mark in the world. Our investment in whole person development includes assisting students to locate and succeed in internships, employment, graduate and professional schools, community service engagement and youth and family outreach.

As a college, we continue to build our research infrastructure in response to the relevant issues of the day in criminal justice and youth mental health. The Center continues to offer programming and to serve as a resource to the state’s youth, families and practitioners in juvenile justice and related fields. Beyond Texas, our impact grows both nationally and internationally each year.
