Students and faculty recently attended the 32nd annual, “Preventing Crime in the Black Community Conference,” in Orlando, Florida. During this year’s conference, B-CU Center for Undergraduate Research Excellence students (CURE) and prospective Criminal Justice majors assisted the faculty with facilitating breakout discussions among conference participants. Faculty members conducted workshops on strategies to improve the relationship between law enforcement and the minority community.

Additionally, CURE students prepared individual presentations on their participation and experience at the conference as a part of their assignment. The students also had the opportunity to meet and converse with local leaders and notables such as, Mr. Harris Rosen, President of the Rosen Hotels & Resorts, Inc.; Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings; and Orange County Commissioner Victoria Siplin.
