Professor Jennifer Wareham co-chairs Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences 2023 annual conference
Professor Jennifer Wareham recently completed her service as the co-chair for the 60th Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (ACJS) Conference in 2023. The Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences is an international association that devotes its resources to enhancing the education and research of the criminal justice field. Over 1,600 practitioners and academics attended the ACJS meeting this year in National Harbor, Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C. As program co-chair, Dr. Wareham worked with the ACJS President to coordinate all aspects of the annual conference. This year’s ACJS conference was titled “60 Years of ACJS: Critical Connections between Civil Rights, Crime, and Social Justice”.
Faculty from the department also attended the conference, along with a group of students who participated in our Criminology and Criminal Justice Department’s National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) project entitled “Communities, Crime, & Criminal Justice in Detroit (C3JD)” this past summer.
Congratulations, Dr. Wareham, on a fantastic conference!
