Four CJ Students Selected to Present at RaCAS

RaCAS announcementSince 1997, the annual Research and Creative Activities Symposium (RaCAS) has showcased the scholarly activities of undergraduate and graduate students from the Denver Campus and the Anschutz Medical Campus. Last year more than 200 student researchers participated in the event and presented their work to an audience of peers, faculty, family and visitors.

Four Master of Criminal Justice students were chosen to present their research at the 2016 symposium:

  • Jessica Rosenthal: A Survey of Youth’s Perceptions of Marijuana Use in Colorado
  • Daniella Johner: Marijuana: How Effective Are Oral Fluid Devices?
  • Nancy Contreras: An Exploration of Social Media, Protests, and Police-Community Relations
  • Katherine Jimmerson: Assessing Sexual Assault Case Management in a Local Police Department (unfortunately, Kate has a conflict and will not be able to present)

Nancy’s research was featured in an April 14 RaCAS preview on CU Denver Today.

Professor Mary Dodge will serve as moderator on the “Papers in Criminal Justice” panel.

The Research and Creative Activities Symposium takes place Friday, April 29, 2016, in the Student Commons Building from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Details are available on the RaCAS website.

Congratulations Jessica, Daniella, Nancy and Kate!
