If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, I want to fill you in on a speaker series that I am very excited to highlight and present in this blog post. I would like to encourage you to keep informed about upcoming events and speaker series that may interest you!
For those of you who are not familiar with this series, please allow me to explain. Regis University’s College of Contemporary Liberal Studies hosts multiple speaker series throughout the calendar year that highlight the most relevant and riveting topics within the field of criminology. These topics range from sexual homicide case studies to public safety implications. In addition to the speaker series, there are other events that students are encouraged to attend such as the CSI and the School Violence Symposium. It goes without saying that these events are very valuable for students. The benefits of attending events at Regis extends beyond education as there is much emphasis placed on networking, access to industry professionals and exposure to real-life and tangible applications of course content.
Events that parallel the criminology program are a great opportunity for students to hear about the most current practices and research on topics that have lasting criminological implications. Featured speakers include prominent criminal psychologists, retired law enforcement officers, district attorneys and other high profile professionals at both local and national levels. Moreover, with a goal to educate, inspire, and motivate, each speaker shares in-depth knowledge and insights on issues directly relevant to working in jobs/careers in the field of criminology.
