RESEARCH AND PUBLISHING OPPORTUNITIES — The Criminology and Criminal Justice Department at IUP enables students to shine academically through conferences and publications. PhD candidate Paul Lucas has been able to develop an active research agenda
and publish original research that focuses on his main research interest, Veterans Treatment Courts. “This would not have been possible without the guidance of the faculty,” he said.
There are two organizations that are open to graduate students only. These are the Criminology Graduate Student Organization (CGSO) and the only student chapter of the Pennsylvania Prison Society.
The CGSO is committed to providing information to graduate students to aid in their success. Each semester, the CGSO sponsors two “Brown Bag” luncheons featuring criminology faculty members talking on a variety of topics. Past luncheons have covered:
professional development in academia, academic job searches, Web-based surveys, and doing research with faculty. The CGSO's annual “Bowling for Kids” event raises money for Big Hearts/Little Hands of Indiana County.
Open to graduate students, the following are among the chapter activities:
