Bylaws of the Department of Criminal Justice


Introduction: Mission Statement and Department Goals

The primary mission of the Department of Criminal Justice is three-fold: to educate students about their responsibilities as scholars and practitioners of criminal justice, and as citizens in a pluralistic society; to maintain an academic and working environment where all faculty and staff are encouraged to develop themselves personally and intellectually and where faculty feel free to engage in teaching, research and community service in the spirit of academic and personal freedom; and to build a department that by its example of cooperation, teamwork and dedication to university and community needs serves as a model for citizen involvement. This primary mission is accomplished by:


Chapter I: Bylaws


Chapter II: Organization and Administrative Structure


Chapter III: Faculty, Faculty Voting, and Voting Rights


Chapter IV: Personnel Policies and Procedures


Chapter V: Faculty Fulfillment of Duties, Termination, and Discipline or Dismissal
