1 S14-16 Board of Regents, State of Iowa REQUEST TO IMPLEMENT A NEW BACCALAUREATE, MASTERS, DOCTORAL OR FIRST PROFESSIONAL DEGREE PROGRAM REVISED JUNE 10, 2014 THE PURPOSE OF ACADEMIC PROGRAM PLANNING: Planning a new academic degree program provides an opportunity for a Regent University to demonstrate need and demand as well as the university s ability to offer a quality program that is not unnecessarily duplicative of other similar programs offered by colleges and universities in Iowa. Institution: Iowa State University Departments involved: Department of Sociology CIP Discipline Specialty Title: Corrections and Criminal Justice CIP Discipline Specialty Number (six digits): Level: Bachelor s Title of Proposed Program: Criminal Justice Degree Abbreviation: B.A. Approximate date to establish degree: August 2015 (Fall 2015 Semester) Contact person(s): Matt DeLisi, (515) , Amy Slagell, (515) , College that will administer new program: Liberal Arts and Sciences Please provide the following information (use additional pages as needed). 1. Describe the proposed new degree program. See Appendix A for a complete description of the curriculum. a. A brief description of the program; In this proposed major students learn about the components of the juvenile and criminal justice systems, become acquainted with the issues affecting these systems, apply theoretical concepts to real-world phenomena, interface with criminal justice and social service provider practitioners, and plan an academic and/or applied career in criminal justice. This proposal is built on an existing track within the Interdisciplinary Studies Major in order to formally establish a stand-alone Criminal Justice major. This degree name will offer clear recognition of the degree for students, fit existing standards for academic and practitioner criminal justice careers, and formalize a successful experimental program which currently has over 400 students enrolled. b. A statement of academic objectives;

2 As a result of their study of this 37 hour major, including a required internship course, students in this Liberal Arts and Sciences Curriculum will accomplish the following learning objectives: Understand theories of crime, victimization, and criminal justice (i.e., theories about social bonds, learning, social control, conflict, labeling, rehabilitation, alternatives to incarceration). Think critically about crime, victimization, and criminal justice (i.e., be able to apply, critique, compare, and integrate knowledge in the area). Understand how race/ethnicity, gender, wealth, and power are related to crime, victimization, and criminal justice. Understand and be able to use basic social science research methods, as well as those most relevant to the study of crime, victimization, and criminal justice. Be familiar with career paths in the criminal justice system, and make career choices that best fit their career interests. Make appropriate decisions, think creatively and be able to express themselves in written and oral communication to supervisors and clients. c. The relationship of the proposed new program to the institutional mission and how the program fits into the institution s and college s strategic plan; Criminal justice directly relates to the University Mission statement to Create, share, and apply knowledge to make Iowa and the world a better place. The Criminal Justice curriculum broadly trains students for applied and/or academic careers in criminal justice and perfectly reflects the science to practice ethos of the land-grant university. The proposed major fits into the College of Liberal Arts and Science s Signature Research Theme of Environmental and Societal Sustainability. It also matches the LAS goal that students acquire the requisite knowledge, abilities, and skills to succeed in the world beyond the university. With the required internship, 90% of graduates of the existing Interdisciplinary Studies track program secure employment in the field quickly upon graduation; having the appropriately named degree will likely increase this already strong placement rate. At both the university and college level, Criminal Justice fits the institutional mission to provide broad academic training for students interested in applied and/or academic careers in criminal justice. In 2014 the Department of Sociology completed its external review and one of the external review team s primary recommendations was the creation of a stand-alone Criminal Justice Major. The visibility that will follow the creation of Criminal Justice as an independent major will enhance the Department and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences as it brings attention to this nationally-recognized area of research and teaching excellence. d. The relationship of the proposed new program to other existing programs at the institution; describe how the proposed program will enhance other programs at the university. This proposed major in Criminal Justice will replace one of the current tracks in LAS 2

3 Interdisciplinary Studies Major that has been in place since the Fall 2006 semester. The proposed major will retain some of its interdisciplinary nature, but will allow a deeper focus in Criminal Justice than the existing track in Interdisciplinary Studies by requiring 9 more credit hours in core disciplinary Criminal Justice courses and increasing the number of credit hours at the 400-level. In addition, the proposed major in Criminal Justice enhances the social science programs at the university, and allows students in sociology, psychology, political science and other majors a potential double major that will enhance their career prospects. Students who double major in programs such as these or who major in criminal justice and take a minor in one of the above programs will be able to take advantage of existing internship relationships with social service organizations such as the Red Cross, the Ankeny Family YMCA, or the Boys and Girls Club of Ames. In other words, the criminal justice degree prepares students not only for careers in the corrections sector, but also in the broader area of public services. e. The relationship of the proposed new program to existing programs at other colleges and universities in Iowa, including how the proposed program is different or has a different emphasis than the existing programs. The proposed program s focus is criminal justice rather than criminology. Criminology is the name and focus of the programs at the University of Northern Iowa and the name of the University of Iowa s 15 credit hour track within its Department of Sociology. Criminal Justice has an applied orientation that deals with the study, treatment, and supervision of criminal offenders within the criminal justice system. Its focus is on the institutions that exert social control, aim to reduce the occurrence of crime and put into place consequences for those engaged in criminal activity. The study of Criminal Justice prepares students to directly address criminal behavior and crime in society. Criminology, by contrast, engages the theory and science of problem behaviors. As the UNI website notes Criminologists concentrate on studying the various forms of criminal behavior, the causes of crime, the definition of crime and societal reactions to criminal activity. The U of Iowa Center for Criminology and Socio-Legal Studies is focused on graduate education and the Criminology, Law and Justice major proposal now under review at the University of Iowa has a greater emphasis on theory than the proposed Criminal Justice curriculum for Iowa State. Each university has a program in the broad area of Criminology and Criminal Justice studies, but each curriculum has been developed to meet the needs of the students and mission of their different university contexts. The Iowa State Criminal Justice Major is 37 credit hours, has an applied-theory focus and requires an Internship (see Appendix E). The required internship is not a feature of the programs at either the University of Iowa or University of Northern Iowa. Though the programs are distinctive there are areas of overlap and opportunities for crossfertilization among the criminology and criminal justice programs at the Regents institutions. The Criminal Justice program at Iowa State is actively pursuing the agreements to cross enroll in the online course offerings at the Regent institutions to broaden course options for students and create areas for learning from the strengths of each of these programs. The national demand for professionals in the field of criminal justice is growing so rapidly that each university can maintain healthy enrollments in their programs and collaborate rather than compete. 3

4 More information about these and peer programs is shown in Appendix B. f. Special features or conditions that make the institution a desirable, unique, or appropriate place to initiate such a degree program. Criminal Justice is a destination major in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Iowa State University and is one of the fastest growing majors on campus with over 400 students. Its applied focus matches our Land Grant mission and its required Internship has given the existing Interdisciplinary program a strong placement rate; 75% of program graduates take positions in the state of Iowa. The Criminal Justice faculty are among the most productive and cited criminologists in the world, include a Fellow of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, and have won universitywide teaching and research awards. Criminal Justice faculty have testified before the United States Senate Judiciary Committee, consulted on capital murder cases at the state and federal level, and won external grants and contracts that involved collaboration with local and federal criminal justice agencies. g. Does the proposing institution have personnel, facilities, and equipment adequate to establish and maintain a high quality program? Yes, as a track in the Interdisciplinary Studies major, the program has experienced rapid growth which it has successfully managed. There is currently a search underway for a faculty hire who will contribute to this area. h. How does student demand for the proposed program justify its development? Since its inception in the fall 2006 semester, the number of students who have elected the Interdisciplinary Studies Major (track in Criminology and Criminal Justice) has increased to over 400 majors. The table below demonstrates the exceptionally strong demand for this area of study. Spring 10 th day # 1 st major 2 nd major Total S S S S S S S S Describe the state and/or national workforce need and/or demand for graduates of the proposed program currently and in the foreseeable future (provide documentation about the current sources of data used to estimate need and demand). Criminal Justice is a growth area for both academic and applied jobs. Since 2006, more than 2,000 ISU students have completed internships with more than 410 local, state, federal, and international 4

5 criminal justice organizations. In about half of these cases, the internship has resulted in employment during the semester of the internship. Information about the internship course appears in Appendix E. Similarly, criminal justice programs are the fastest growth academic programs in the social sciences. The student enrollment in the Criminal Justice Studies Program at Iowa State University has increased more than ten-fold since Most criminal justice organizations hire persons who originally interned or volunteered with their agency, thus the program directly serves the employer s need for staff. The U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts 10% growth in the kinds of positions our students are prepared to hold as well as increasing openings from retirements of existing employees. The criminal justice field includes many career paths in a wide range of local and federal government agencies as well as in private corporations and agencies. 3. List all other public and private institutions of higher education in Iowa currently operating programs similar to the proposed new degree program. (For comparison purposes, use a broad definitional framework, e.g., such identification should not be limited to programs with the same title, the same degree designation, having the same curriculum emphasis, or purporting to meet exactly the same needs as the proposed program.) As discussed in question 1.d above the University of Northern Iowa major and the sociology program track at the University of Iowa focus on criminology and, at the latter program, the focus is also on graduate education. See Appendix D for a list of every Criminal Justice/Criminology program in the state. If the same or similar program exists at another public or private institution of higher education in Iowa, respond to the following questions: a. Could the other institution reasonably accommodate the need for the new program through expansion? Through collaboration? Demand for these programs and their distinctive nature at each institution is strong. During consulting conversations with other institutions it became clear among representatives from the comparable programs at the University of Northern Iowa and the University Iowa that similar, yet distinct, programs can operate successfully at all institutions. In fact, programs have been operating on some level at these institutions since the fall 2006 semester. b. With what representatives of these programs has there been consultation in developing the program proposal? Provide a summary of the response of each institution consulted. Yes, criminologists from UNI and UI were contacted and provided support of the proposal and support for greater collaboration between the Regent s institutions (see point c). Conversations among the Dean s offices are also underway to find paths for collaboration, particularly through online coursework. Letters from LAS Deans at UNI and UI will be attached to this proposal. c. Has the possibility of an inter-institutional program or other cooperative effort been explored? What are the results of this study? (Consider not only the possibility of a formally established inter-institutional program, but also how special resources at other institutions might be used on a cooperative basis in implementing the proposed program solely at the requesting institution.) Given the demand for trained professionals in Criminal Justice offering the major at multiple universities 5

6 is justified. In addition, ISU has initiated discussions with the University of Northern Iowa and with the University of Iowa to formalize agreements to collaborate with online course offerings. In August 2014, faculty at UNI and UI both indicated support for offering online criminal justice courses to students from all three institutions. Professor Phyllis Baker, Chair of the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology at UNI indicated, Nice to hear from you again. I would love to talk about a collaboration [for online courses]. The process you suggest above would be easy except that our online courses are really full. Another criminologist at UNI, Richard Featherstone, who is also serving as Interim Associate Dean, expressed strong support for online course offerings to students at all three schools. Criminologist Mark Berg in the Department of Sociology at UI indicated support for shared online courses, in addition to visiting lectures in departments. October 30, 2014 conversations with Associate Dean Helena Dettmer and Kathryn Hall, Senior Director for Academic Programs at the University of Iowa about the related program proposals being vetted on both the U of I and ISU campuses further cemented plans to promote sharing of online course offering information from the Regents intuitions to students on each campus. While each program wishes to serve the students from its program first in online course offerings, all express a willingness to admit students from the other institutions and to collaborate as to future offerings. The ISU Registrar confirms that there is an existing registration code for students who enroll in courses at one of the other Regent s institutions. Appendix C sets out the recent online course offerings in criminal justice/criminology at the three Regent s universities to indicate the viability of this exchange. d. Do other colleges in Iowa offer programs similar to the proposed program at comparable quality and cost? No. e. Are letters of support included with the program proposal? Such letters will be attached before the proposal moves beyond faculty review. 4. Estimate the number of majors and non-majors students that are projected to be enrolled in the program during the first seven years of the program. a. Undergraduate Undergraduate Yr 1 Yr 2 Yr 3 Yr 4 Yr 5 Yr 6 Yr 7 Majors b. Graduate The program is undergraduate only. c. What are the anticipated sources of these students? Current student demand exists. The growth of the student enrollment in Criminal Justice has been very strong (see 1h above). Currently, the Criminal Justice track of Interdisciplinary Studies is the 5th largest major in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (out of 42 majors). 6

7 5. If there are plans to offer the program away from the campus, briefly describe these plans, including potential sites and possible methods of delivery instruction. Will off-campus delivery require additional HLC accreditation? Both on campus and online delivery options currently exist for six courses in the ISU curriculum. The academic expectations for the courses are identical regardless of the course delivery system. 6. Has the proposed program been reviewed and approved by the appropriate campus committees and authorities? Yes, this proposal will go through the required processes for faculty and administrative review. 7. List date the program proposal was submitted to the Iowa Coordinating Council for Post High School Education (ICCPHSE) and results of listserv review. Provost office will add this date. 8. Will the proposed program apply for programmatic accreditation? When? The program would be eligible to apply for accreditation if it reaches a critical mass of faculty members (approximately 10) and courses. Standards for accreditation are articulated by the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences which sets program standards for criminology and criminal justice programs. (http://www.acjs.org/pubs/uploads/baccalaureatedegreeself-studytemplate-all-in-one.doc) 9. Will articulation agreements be developed for the proposed program? With whom? Iowa State University already has articulation agreements with the community colleges in the state with the Admissions Partnership Program. The Criminal Justice Studies program regularly interacts with and sponsors transfer events for students from several community colleges including Des Moines Area Community College, Ellsworth Community College, Iowa Central Community College, and others. 10. Describe the faculty, facilities, and equipment that will be required for the proposed program. Three faculty (DeLisi, Hochstetler, and Behnken), two lecturers, and two part-time advisors are the staff used for the existing Interdisciplinary studies program and will be needed for the proposed Criminal Justice Major. Criminal Justice is currently searching for an additional faculty line to contribute to the program. 11. From where will the financial resources for the proposed program come (list all that apply, e.g., department reallocation, college reallocation, grants, new to the university)? SOURCES TOTAL AMOUNT Existing Budget for Faculty and Staff in LAS $416,633 Year 1 Department and College Reallocation $75, Estimate the total costs/total new costs (incremental increases in expenditures) that will be necessary for the next seven years as a result of the new program: TOTAL COSTS TOTAL NEW COSTS 7

8 Year 1 $416,633 $75,000 (faculty) Year 2 $549,633 $75,000+ $58,000 (advisor)= $133,644 Year 3 $549,633 $133, Describe the program evaluation plan to determine if the program is meeting the intended objectives, if the expected student enrollment has occurred, funding for the program, and any other components that affect the effective operation of the program. Like every new program at Iowa State, this new major will undergo a minor review annually to review course offerings and program leadership, and to adjust budget allocations. After its first five years a formal review will be held and, if the program is deemed healthy, it will then enter into the regular seven year cycle for academic program reviews. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will initiate the five year review. The program will produce a self-study to bring together data concerning student demand, results of learning assessments, graduation data, placement data, program activities, advising assessment, and strategic planning. This program will also be reviewed for development and success of articulation agreements with community colleges and for collaborations with Regent s institutions in online course offerings. 14. Include any additional information that justifies the development of this program. Administration: With the approval of this major the administrative home for the Criminal Justice program will formally move from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (the home of the Interdisciplinary Studies Major) to the Department of Sociology. Students will notice no interruption to their services and support since advising for the criminal justice track is currently carried out by staff in the Department of Sociology.

9 OVERVIEW Appendix A: Description of the BA in Criminal Justice Program Requirements and Four Year Graduation Plan Criminology and Criminal Justice is currently a track within the Interdisciplinary Studies Major leading to the BA degree Interdisciplinary Studies Criminology and Criminal Justice (the original interdisciplinary studies minor was approved by the Iowa Board of Regents in 1985). This proposal pulls out this wellestablished track within Interdisciplinary Studies to formally establish the existing program as a standalone major. With the new name, this degree offers more parsimonious recognition of the degree for students, fits existing standards for academic and practitioner criminal justice careers, and formalizes a successful experimental program which now has over 400 students enrolled. In this program students learn about the components of the juvenile and criminal justice systems, become acquainted with the issues affecting these systems, apply theoretical concepts to real-world phenomena, interface with criminal justice and social service provider practitioners, and plan an academic and/or applied career in criminology and criminal justice. JUSTIFICATION FOR THE MAJOR There are currently over 400 majors in the Interdisciplinary Studies track in Criminology and Criminal Justice. The enrollment success of the program and the departmental interest in supporting the identity of those students with an appropriately named stand-alone degree program in Criminal Justice are the two main drivers for this proposal. The Spring 2014 external review team for the Department of Sociology also recommended moving forward with this proposal. Academically, the minor revisions between this program and the existing track serve to improve the preparation of our students for their careers by increasing their hours of criminal justice coursework. National demand for students well equipped for criminal justice careers is a final justification for the proposal. Criminal Justice is a growth area for both academic and applied jobs. Since 2006, more than 2,000 ISU students have completed internships with more than 410 local, state, federal, and international criminal justice organizations. In about half of these cases, the internship has resulted in employment during the semester of the internship. The U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts ten percent growth in the kinds of positions our students are prepared to hold as well as increasing openings from retirements of existing employees. The criminal justice field includes many career paths in a wide range of local and federal government agencies as well as in private corporations and agencies. This criminal justice major will also prepare students interested in law school or graduate work in Criminology, Social Work or specialty programs such as Adult, Juvenile and Community Corrections Leadership. LEARNING OUTCOMES AND ASSESSMENT The proposed curriculum in Criminal Justice identifies seven distinct learning outcomes. As a result of their study of this major students will: Understand theories of crime, victimization, and criminal justice (i.e., theories about social bonds, learning, social control, conflict, labeling, rehabilitation, alternatives to incarceration). Think critically about crime, victimization, and criminal justice (i.e., be able to apply, critique, 9

10 compare, and integrate knowledge in the area). Understand how race/ethnicity, gender, wealth, and power are related to crime, victimization, and criminal justice. Understand and be able to use basic social science research methods, as well as those most relevant to the study of crime, victimization, and criminal justice. Be familiar with career paths in the criminal justice system, and make career choices that best fit their career interests. Make appropriate decisions, think creatively and be able to express themselves in written and oral communication to supervisors and clients. This program uses four approaches to assess student achievement of the learning objectives. Regular Course Level assessment of the two required core courses as part of the University Continuous Improvement initiative Review of student performance of course competencies Review of student self-assessment of learning course satisfaction with course-based assessments/evaluations Review of program outcomes through analysis of evaluations from internship supervisors for each student detailing the adequacy of student preparation CURRICULUM This program will be a major within the Curriculum of the Liberal Arts and Sciences. Students will meet all University and LAS College graduation requirements and the following program requirements: Program Requirements 37 credits with at least 9 credits of 400 or above. Minimum 2.0 GPA average in coursework applied to the major.

12 Comparison to the Existing Track in Interdisciplinary Studies The proposed major strengthens the existing track within the Interdisciplinary Studies degree. 1. The following key features of the Interdisciplinary Studies curricular track remain the same in the proposed major: 37 hour program of study in the Major Required Internship Criminal Justice focus Curricular subject areas of: Epidemiology of Crime and Justice; Theoretical Bases of Crime, Justice and Social Control, Legal, Political and Philosophical Bases, Criminal Justice System and Special Topics 2. The following key features of the proposed major are different from the existing Interdisciplinary Studies curricular track Disciplinary core required courses required for every student increased from 3 (9 hours) to 6 (18 hours) Requirement for general study of social science methods through a specific course requirement has been replaced by increased hours in coursework working with Criminal Justice methodologies Focused coursework in Criminal Justice System and Special Topics area increased from choose 2 courses required, to choose 5 courses required Internship now requires a product from the student (not just a report from the supervisor) Internship credits that can be applied toward graduation are now limited to 9 [previously was 12] Includes collaboration with the University of Iowa and University of Northern Iowa in online course offerings that can be transferred to apply to the degree program Increased the number of 400 level credits required from 6 to 9.
