Record Number of Graduates Receive Juvenile Justice Reform Certificate Through Florida HBCU Talent Pipeline Project


Spring 2018 commencement marked a record number of students receiving the Certificate of Completion in Juvenile Justice Reform through the Florida Historically Black Colleges and Universities Talent Pipeline Project sponsored by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. Twelve criminal justice students within the College of Liberal Arts were awarded certificates. 

Since the inception of the project, more than 25 B-CU students have received certificates. One of the primary goals of the project is to provide future juvenile justice leaders with data-driven, race-equity course content and tools necessary to advance juvenile justice reform efforts. 

Students earning a “C” grade or higher in four required courses are eligible to receive the Juvenile Justice Reform Certificate of Completion. Each Florida HBCU developed one of the four required courses for communal use.  Florida HBCU's Talent Pipeline Project represents more than 1,500 criminal justice majors receiving undergraduate and graduate degrees and serves as an innovative and nationally-recognized effort to introduce criminal justice students to a juvenile justice reform orientation.
