Partnership Highlight

Restorative Justice in the United Kingdom

The School of Social & Community Services has expanded their partnership agreement with the University of Gloucestershire to allow for students to engage in the rich experience of field placements in the United Kingdom.

Bolstering off of the U of G “Developing Social Research” module, Humber’s Criminal Justice Degree students joined the U of G Social Sciences BSc Criminology students in the first ever, joint field experience this past spring.

Our faculty led a group of 19 students to Cheltenham, UK and Belfast, UK to gain direct experience in the area of the Restorative Justice and policing services. Special thanks to Dr. Alyssa Ferns, Dr. Joanna Amirault, Dr. Daniel Bear, and Rebecca Fitzgerald for their leadership with this initiative, and to our friends at the University of Gloucestershire who went above and beyond as hosts.
