The Peter W. Rodino. Jr. Institute of Criminal Justice
The Peter W. Rodino, Jr. Institute of Criminal Justice was
established on June 5, 1977 at New Jersey City University. The
Institute promotes the urban mission of the University.
The Rodino Institute is dedicated to improving the operations of the
criminal justice system and to supporting issues of social justice. It
serves as a major avenue for an exchange of ideas between the community,
the Department of Criminal Justice/Security and the University.
It seeks to accomplish this by mobilizing the resources of the
University and by reaching out to the community-at-large in a variety of
ways: by sponsoring conferences and seminars for professionals and the
general public on critical criminal justice issues; by providing
technical assistance to local police, court, correctional, probation,
parole and juvenile justice agencies; by conducting innovative research
and demonstration projects; and by assisting in developing opportunities
for student internships in criminal justice agencies.
