Community Affairs, School of

WSU’s School of Community Affairs, created in 1999, brings together the departments of criminal justice and ethnic studies to form a unique and diverse curriculum to better serve the needs of students who will work in an ever-changing urban and global community. Additionally, the Midwest Criminal Justice Institute (MCJI), the Regional Community Policing Training Institute (RCPTI), and the Juvenile Justice Research Center provide opportunities to blend teaching, research and service. As a result, the School of Community Affairs not only serves as a quality educational unit for students, but also functions as a research and service unit that assists with a broader range of needs identified in the community.
