PRI's Upcoming Occasional Series: The Use of Criminal Records in College Admissions

From the Center for Community Alternatives:

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

I thought you might be interested in the upcoming Occasional Series on Reentry Research sponsored by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice Prisoner Reentry Institute. On Friday, May 6 from 9:00 am - 10:30 am, I will be reviewing the results of CCA’s study “ The Use of Criminal Records in College Admissions: Reconsidered.” The study is the first to explore the use of criminal history record screening in the college admissions process. The full report is available on our website at http://www.communityalternatives.org./

The discussants will include Linda Hollmen, Director of Education at New York State Department of Correctional Services and John Molina, Director of I.M.P.A.C.T at Exodus Transitional Community.
The event will be held at John Jay College, 899 Tenth Avenue, between 58th and 59th Streets, Room 630, New York, NY 10019.
To attend RSVP to pri@jjay.cuny.edu.

Best regards,

Marsha Weissman, Ph.D.
