SCJR’s mission is to encourage interdisciplinary dialogue to explore the intersections between criminal justice and other areas of public policy.
SCJR members are passionate about social justice. We believe that criminal justice reform is an important issue and provides a critical lens to examine many social and policy issues, including poverty, race, youth engagement, health, housing, immigration, economic development, and more.
SCJR received President Sexton's 2010 President's Service Award for exhibiting outstanding leadership in engaging civic leaders and students in significant cross-disciplinary dialogue about criminal justice policies. The President's Service Awards recognize outstanding NYU students and groups who have made significant contributions to the university community in the areas of learning, leadership, and quality of student life.
