Student and Alumni Organizations
Criminology Graduate Student Organization
The purpose of the CGSO is to serve and advocate for graduate students within the department of Criminology both at the departmental and university levels. The CGSO is responsible for hosting workshops aimed at improving teaching and research effectiveness, organizing and implementing the annual departmental research symposium, addressing student concerns, enhancing communication between faculty and students, and assisting with orientation of incoming graduate students.
The CGSO also serves as a support network for Criminology graduate students at the individual-level. We support each other through the difficult times such as finals and the comp-process and celebrate the victories like a first publication or successful dissertation defense. We plan parties and events throughout the semester, as well as actively participate in service projects for the community.
