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
