The Criminal Justice Mentoring Center

The Criminal Justice Mentoring Center has been designed as an office where students can meet with criminal justice personnel and prospective employers for career advice.  The office will be staffed with practitioners from criminal justice agencies (local, state and Federal) from around the country.  Students can meet with agency personnel for mentoring, advice on internships, employment, and careers.  This is a service for students, and the department encourages participation in this resource.  These agencies will only send representatives if they know students will take advantage of this opportunity.  We advise students to please stop in on a regular basis to gain insights into careers in the criminal justice field.

Criminal Justice Department Mentoring Center is located in Breland Hall 127.
