    BDPs Launch New Criminal Law, Justice & Inequality Certificate

    This spring, the BDPs add a 17th program to their roster: the Criminal Law, Justice & Inequality certificate. Students who participate in BDPs take courses taught by professors across the Forty Acres and complete an internship or research project to earn a certificate in their chosen subject matter. In the case of this newest certificate, they’ll be exploring how society defines crime and reacts to behaviors that meet that definition.

I work with a talented and devoted team of people who recruit, teach, enlighten and support students so they’re transformed during their time on the Forty Acres. Our students become leaders, engage the community around them, form key connections, and then ultimately, they go out and transform society for the benefit of others.
