Justice & Security Cluster


This course addresses the themes of our respective clusters through an exploration of the origins and expressions of justice and security, using critical reading and in-depth analysis of historical sources as well as hands-on exposure to the manifestations of major course themes in our local communities. The first iteration of this course will engage with nearby corrections facilities during prison visits and discussions with local experts in victimology, such as Voices Against Violence, a local victim advocacy group.

In future versions of this course, we anticipate broader engagement with national correctional initiatives. For example, incorporating the Ohio Risk Assessment System (ORAS), a tool consulted five times during an offender’s life, would organically connect the course to recent and relevant developments in the philosophy of corrections, enabling students to have impact as well-informed citizens or to prepare for careers related to the field.
