The Justice Studies Task Force

Founded in the fall of 2009, the Justice Studies Task Force was created to promote camaraderie and collaboration between the student groups in the Justice Studies Department. The Task Force is made up of two members of each of the Justice Studies student groups as well as representatives from the graduate program and recent Justice Studies alumni.



They established the Confidence Challenge, a physical agility event in which teams compete against one another in a friendly but challenging version of the physical agility test for law enforcement with a creative twist.

The purpose of this competition is to give students and faculty an idea of the physical challenges which must be met by law enforcement candidates, but more importantly, it promotes camaraderie and companionship throughout the Justice Studies Department. It has been hugely successful and has become an annual event every spring.

The Task Force has also taken on the responsibility for organizing and hosting the Justice Studies Department Convocation ceremony. Their first ceremony, the fall 2013 convocation, was well received by faculty and graduates alike.
