Current Projects

Research Network on Misdemeanor Justice (RN-MJ): NCCU has been chosen as one of six sites around the nation for the Research Network on Misdemeanor Justice, sponsored by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, and funded by the Arnold Foundation. The purpose of the network is to use data analytics to inform policy on enforcement of lower level criminal offenses. The Juvenile Justice Institute will gather and analyze data from the Durham area regarding arrest and eventual disposition of offenses such as shoplifting, fraud, petty theft, forgery, and possession of small amounts of drugs. That information will be used to examine the degree to which law enforcement trends impact perception of public safety, law enforcement budgets, community/police relations, and other issues.

Campus Community Coalition (C3): NCCU received funding from the US Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to reduce substance abuse and prevent the transmission of HIV/AIDS among African-American young adults (ages 18-24) on the NCCU campus and in the surrounding community.
