You may know that the Department of Sociology, Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice, and UMB's Carey School of Law have joined forces to create a new online degree program in Public Safety Leadership and Administration (PLA) (https://www.marylandpla.com/)
. Given the national attention paid to racism in the criminal justice system, it's hard to imagine a better time for a program like ours. In this announcement I want to 1) share a little information about the offerings and opportunities of the program; and 2) announce two upcoming virtual events hosted by the program.
