Vision The faculty in the Criminal Justice Program (CRJS) is dedicated to teaching students how to search for truth and justice by applying theory, practical knowledge, and ethical reasoning in domestic and international environments in the effort to improve society. Mission The Criminal Justice Program (CRJS) at Gannon University is an interdisciplinary, undergraduate major that is dedicated to education, research, and service in the fields of criminal justice, public safety, and social justice. With the capacity to develop graduates who have intellectual curiosity, moral commitment and professional competence to confront the challenges of crime and justice, CRJS strives to provide students with critical thinking and effective communication skills as well as to cultivate their capacity for personal growth and creative problem solving. Essentially, we seek to inspire students to become responsible citizens and public servants. Building on this foundation, CRJS offers its students a diverse curriculum that balances the arts, sciences and humanities with professional training, and challenges them to make a difference in the lives of others. Goal â€˘ Students will demonstrate the research, investigative, and forensic skills important for working in justice or a related field.
