The Racial Democracy, Crime and Justice Network’s Summer Research Institute (SRI) is designed to promote scholarly success and career advancement among faculty from underrepresented groups working in areas of crime and criminal justice. Faculty pursuing tenure in research-intensive institutions, academics transitioning from teaching to research institutions, and faculty members carrying out research in teaching contexts are encouraged to apply for the three-week intensive institute. During the institute, each participant will complete the project proposed in this application (either a research paper or grant proposal) in preparation for journal submission or agency funding review. The institute will provide resources for completing the project, senior faculty mentorship, networking opportunities, professional development workshops, and a culminating symposium. Travel and living expenses will be covered by the institute. SRI Fellows are expected to be in residence for the duration of the Institute, as contributing members of the Summer Research Institute’s intellectual community. The Summer Research Institute is organized by Professors Jody Miller and Rod K. Brunson, and Professor Emerita Ruth D. Peterson, and will be held at the Rutgers School of Criminal Justice in Newark, NJ. Funding is provided by the National Science Foundation and Rutgers University.
