Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE

COMBINE THEORY & PRACTICE TO LEAD AND SERVE.

Norwich Criminal Justice faculty serve widely as committee members and leaders in statewide and national organizations, including four past presidents of the Northeastern Association of Criminal Justice. We actively publish refereed papers in national academic journals, present papers at national conferences, author books, and serve on editorial boards. Many of us have been recognized as the recipients of research grants, awards from organizations such as the Vermont Women in Higher Education and American Association of University Women, and the most prestigious research award at Norwich—the Board of Fellows Prize. The School of Justice and Sociology is one of only seven university programs nationwide to be affiliated with its state’s criminal justice statistical analysis center.

Our adjunct faculty members have also achieved distinction through service in major leadership positions. These include posts as the director and deputy director of the Vermont Department of Public Safety and commissioner and deputy commissioner for legal affairs at the Vermont Department of Corrections. Other adjunct faculty members have served as legal counselors for governors or as lawyers in the Attorney General’s Office, the Defender General’s Office, as State Attorneys for Washington County, and as director of the Vermont Criminal Information Center.
