About the Minority Mentor Lecture Series
The Minority Mentor Lecture Series was created in 2008 by the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware to address the disproportionate representation of minority scholars in the fields of Criminology and Sociology. This series helps to highlight the important work of minority scholars in the fields of Criminology and Sociology. Additionally, it provides mentoring and network opportunities for minority students in the fields as well as professional development for all graduate students. The event includes a guest lecture, reception, mentoring for minority students, and a professional development workshop for all graduate students.
