The Role of the University in the Era of Mass Incarceration
October 14-15, 2016
With 2.25 million citizens behind bars, America incarcerates more people than any other country. The social and financial impact of this policy are spiraling out of control. For this year’s Shasha Seminar we will convene experts from across the country to examine the University’s role in this seemingly intractable problem and discuss paths forward.
Mike Lawlor, Connecticut State Under Secretary for Criminal Justice Policy and Planning
