Content Description

The collection consists of brochures and newsletter from the College of Criminal Justice at Northeastern University. The collection is unprocessed. Northeastern University established the College of Criminal Justice (CCJ) in 1967 to provide professional training and support study and research in the administration of criminal justice. The College of Criminal Justice emerged from the University College's Department of Law Enforcement and Security, which was founded in 1961 and offered part-time baccalaureate and associate degree programs. Initially designed to prepare students for careers in law enforcement, the College of Criminal Justice's academic program has expanded to include course work in corrections, juvenile delinquency, social welfare, criminalistics, and rehabilitation. Based on the Cooperative Plan of Education, The College of Criminal Justice enables students to alternate periods of study with supervised work assignments in police departments, adult and juvenile correctional institutions, settlement houses, probation and parole departments, law offices, and security organizations. From an enrollment of 54 students in 1967-1968, the College of Criminal Justice had grown to approximately 1,000 full-time undergraduates and 70 graduate students by 1999. Accessioned 2008 Dec 22.
