The Center’s mission is to promote fair, informed, effective, and ethical approaches to criminal justice policy and practice through collaborative interdisciplinary research and evaluation, professional leadership development, and targeted projects designed to bring about systemic improvements in Illinois’ criminal justice system.
The Center’s work advances four specific and interrelated goals:
Improve the quality of knowledge and practice in the criminal justice field;
Motivate and support policy reform efforts;
Carry out targeted reform initiatives; and
Provide an institutional home for sustained criminal justice research, education, and reform.
Key strategies of the Center focus on sound research, policy analysis, and training, as well as specialized projects aimed at improving Illinois’ criminal justice system. The design and implementation of these strategies will be carried out by faculty and students from across Loyola’ s schools and departments in collaboration with public and private partners, including policymakers and justice-system practitioners.
