This Living-Learning Community is geared towards students who are entering UMass Lowell as Criminal Justice majors. Programs will be focused on exploring career opportunities as well as engaging with local law enforcement professionals and field trips to go beyond the classroom in exploring this rapidly expanding major at the University. Residents of this LLC will have the opportunity to interact regularly with a faculty adviser within the College of Fine Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences for academic support, mentoring, and guidance.
As a result of living in the Hall of Justice Living-Learning Community, students will have the opportunity to:
- Explore diverse social issues facing the Justice system.
- Identify campus resources that can assist in accomplishing personal and academic goals (e.g., Internships, Finding a Mentor, Tutoring, Resume writing, etc.)
- Develop meaningful relationships through networking opportunities with faculty, staff, alumni and peers that promote professional and academic success.
- Develop problem-solving skills, techniques and methods that will empower career development.
- Investigate the various career opportunities, academic Majors, Minors and Concentrations, within the field of Criminal Justice.
- Identify service opportunities within the field of Criminal Justice, including opportunities provided on the UMass Lowell campus, and within the region, that will promote leadership.
