Message from the Dean

Rutgers University has a long and fine tradition of providing a wonderful education, and the School of Criminal Justice is proud to be a significant contributor to the educational excellence that we value. As dean, I welcome you to the school, and am always keen to hear how our endeavors can be improved upon to ensure that students and the community reap the maximum benefit.

It is often said that crime follows opportunity and, in the world in which we live, science and technology as well as change in social structure and demography create new opportunities. When these opportunities are realized, crime not only irritates and offends, but hurts, and hurts deeply. Crime is both very local--it occurs in families and neighborhoods--and global--the movement of money, goods, and people across the globe. Preventing and mitigating crime requires intellect, lots of great skills, and a commitment to evidence and analysis.

The School of Criminal Justice has some of the world's leading scholars, who have devoted many years to research, much of which has been cutting edge, and who are teaching generations of students who have gone on to career success. The school is here for our students and for the community--our faculty are among the best, and we are all fortunate to be in a great university. This combination of factors will lead to a solid and rewarding education, and I trust that all our efforts will produce worthwhile results across a wide spectrum.

I am always happy to hear about how the school is performing and how we can strive to do our best.

Adam Graycar

Professor and Dean, School of Criminal Justice
