Scenario: Imagine that Mary Baldwin University has commissioned a task force to examine why crime occurs on campus and to make recommendations about how to reduce campus crime.

Background: The theories and content in this course
are not intended for armchair critics. Folks throughout the criminal justice system regularly refer to and rely on these various theories to help inform their practice and program development. In this way, the ideas of our major theorists continually shape the criminal justice field and the communities and individuals impacted by criminal justice institutions. But each theory is unique, so which theories are applied to construct criminal justice policies and programs will result in drastically different sets of prescriptions and recommendations.
