Advocates for Criminal Justice Club (ACJ)

The Advocates for Criminal Justice Club (ACJ) is a student-led organization established to give students an opportunity to network with each other about the many issues associated with the study of crime and justice, to meet with professionals from the criminal justice or related fields, and to provide service learning opportunities in the local community. ACJ is open to criminal justice and non-criminal justice students alike and there are no membership dues associated with the club. Meetings are held at least monthly and most include professional, guest speakers. Announcements about ACJ meetings are posted regularly on the MHU announcement page. Students interested in additional information about ACJ should contact Dr. Barbara Sims, ACJ Faculty Adviser, Cornwell 316, or by email.

Student Advisory Committee

Adult and Graduate Studies Student Advisory Committee is made up of undergraduate students from each of the academic disciplines that we serve. Selected students from each class site participate. The student led committee meets twice each year to review and discuss their experiences with the program. Of course, we welcome their positive feedback, what is working well, but more importantly we ask them to help us identify areas of improvement, what is not working well. We choose students for the committee who have demonstrated academic success and students who will give us constructive feedback. We ask them to help us find solutions to address the areas of improvement whenever possible.
