Undergraduate Research

Research represents an integral part of the educational experience in the college.  Undergraduate students, collaborating with faculty members, participate in independent research as a process of creating new knowledge.  COJJP students can participate in research efforts across diverse topics in juvenile justice and psychology through mentoring by faculty. The apprenticeship model of mentoring strongly encourages students to initiate independent projects, showcase the results at conferences (i.e., either local, state, or national) and assist with writing a manuscript for publication.
