PURPOSE OF THE INSTITUTE FOR CRIMINAL JUSTICE ETHICS
The Summer Seminar is a program created and organized by The Institute for Criminal Justice Ethics at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. The institute is the only nonprofit, university-based center of its kind in the United States, was established to foster greater concern for ethical issues among practitioners and scholars in the criminal justice field. Through its diverse programs it serves both as a national clearinghouse for information and as a stimulus to research and publication. It seeks to encourage increased sensitivity to the demands of ethical behavior among those who administer and enforce our system of criminal justice, a more focused treatment of moral issues in the education of criminal justice professionals, and a new dialogue among scholars and practitioners on specific topics in criminal justice ethics.
The Summer Seminar in Philosophy Program is part of the institute’s Character, Agency, and Identity project.
