Students of the Psychology, Sociology, and Criminal Justice program presented projects at the Oklahoma Criminal Justice Association conference earlier this month. The conference was held at East Central University in Ada on April 9.
At the conference, criminal justice professionals from across the state of Oklahoma gave brief talks.
RSU students Andrea Miles, Charity Prewitt, and Deveric Taylor each presented projects in poster format.
Diana Clayton, associate professor of Psychology, Sociology, and Criminal Justice Department, also presented at the conference, speaking on the topic of: “Justice within the Criminal Justice System – reality or illusion?”
“These three students took an interest in these independent topics outside of their classes and took the initiative to explore [them]. They addressed contemporary issues and each had a unique approach,” said Clayton.
“They were able to gain confidence and experience in describing their work to others.”
Miles, Prewitt, and Taylor based their presentations on “Domestic Violence – an epidemic?,” “Juvenile Justice within the Adult Penal System,” “If all men are created equal, then why does Lady Justice show many signs that she has vision?,” respectively.
