A History of Educating for Justice

This exhibition celebrates the 50th Anniversary of John Jay College of Criminal Justice. From its evolution as a small school serving New York’s uniformed services, John Jay has grown to an internationally renowned liberal arts institution offering a wide range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The College not only changed in response to historical developments both in New York City and the world, it has shaped these developments by contributing to public policy debates in such areas as criminology, penology, human rights, and ethics.

Text and information in this exhibit is taken from Educating for Justice: a History of John Jay College by Gerald (Jerry) E. Markowitz, published 2008 [c2004] by John Jay Press and available in the John Jay Library. It is curated by Claudia Calirman, Robin Davis, Jerry Markowitz, Ellen Sexton, and Fritz Umbach.

The exhibit is on display in Haaren Hall from August 2014 to May 2015. Click here, to view the complementary digital exhibition.
