Justice and Human Services

School of Justice & Human Services

The Justice Center is an interdisciplinary unit that provides undergraduate and professional education; conducts research in the areas of crime, law, and justice; and provides services to government units, justice agencies, and community organizations throughout urban and rural Alaska to promote a safe, healthy, and just society.

Building on liberal arts and science foundations, a theoretical framework, and experiential learning, the human services degree programs prepare students for human services practice in organizational and advocacy settings where they can provide ongoing support to vulnerable individuals of diverse backgrounds.
