Advocates of Tomorrow students socialize at a program on designing an inclusive residential community. Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) provide students the opportunity to explore common interests with other students in their living environment. Through living and participating in an LLC, students will be provided with intentional and meaningful opportunities that will help them to make purposeful links between the academic and co-curricular components of their college experience.

Empowering students to confront issues impacting our justice system

The Upper-Class Hall of Justice Living-Learning Community is designed for Upper-Class students who are Criminal Justice majors, or have an interest in the field of Criminal Justice and/or Criminology. Students who live in this LLC will expand upon the key aspects of the First-Year LLC experience to develop their critical thinking and communication skills as they conceptualize ideas and identify practical solutions to address social issues within the Criminal Justice field. Sponsored by the College of Fine Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, this LLC provides a dedicated Faculty Advisor who empowers students to address issues they are passionate about, and to then help them find ways in which they can create innovative solutions that will impact our society, as well as the local and global community. 

As a result of living in the Upper-Class Hall of Justice Living-Learning Community, students will have the opportunity to…

  • Identify diverse social issues facing the Justice system they are passionate about addressing.
  • Use campus resources to assist in accomplishing personal and academic goals (e.g., Internships, Finding a Mentor, Tutoring, Resume writing, etc.).
  • Utilize developed meaningful relationships with faculty, staff, alumni and peers to promote professional and academic success.
  • Apply problem-solving skills, techniques and methods to address social issues impacting the field of Criminal Justice.
  • Investigate the various career opportunities within the field of Criminal Justice.
  • Utilize service opportunities within the field of Criminal Justice, and on-campus, to further develop leadership skills.
