The Criminal Justice Club
The Criminal Justice Club is made up of concerned students who meet regularly for the purpose of discussing emerging issues in criminal justice. Both the Newburgh campus and the Middletown campus have distinct clubs. The advisor for the Newburgh Criminal Justice Club is Professor Timothy Zeszutek, while Professor Robert Cacciatore advises the Middletown club.
Club members engage in a variety of campus wide events and initiatives which include hosting films, discussion forums and career days.
The Clubs also take field trips intended to provide members with hands-on experiences germane to their studies. During the last few semesters they have taken trips to the 9-11 Museum, the Orange County Jail, the New York City Police Museum, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia, the birthplace of the U.S. Constitution.
Professor Dennis O’Loughlin, the Criminal Justice Department Chair, strongly supports the Clubs in all their efforts. “It's really great to watch these students gather on their own time to do what they do. At the end of the day, the Clubs teach them not only about issues involving criminal justice, but about social responsibility as well” said Professor O'Loughlin.
The Clubs, which are democratic organizations, are run by students who are elected
to their positions by their fellow student members.
