Immediately following the mandatory field orientation there will be a mini Early Selection Field Fair in the classrooms from 1p – 2p. Early Selection placements begin their interview and selection process earlier than our regular placements. They may require some type of commitment in the Fall semester (volunteer hours or a long orientation), they are located both in and out of town, and they are generally competitive due to their quality in training interns!

Dean’s Lecture Series: Thalia González

February 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Utopia Theatre, School of Social Work,
1925 San Jacinto Blvd.
Austin, TX United States

The 2015-2016 Dean’s Lecture Series Contemporary Issues in Research and Practice and the Institute for Restorative Justice and Restorative Dialogue present

Thalia Gonzalez, JD
Restorative Justice at the Crossroads: From Practice to Policy to Systemic Reform

Light lunch will be served starting at 11:30am. Please RSVP to sw-rsvp@austin.utexas.edu 

Restorative justice in the United States is at a crossroads; it is no longer simply viewed as a grassroots practice, but instead as a policy solution in such areas as school discipline, youth justice, child welfare, violence, policing, racial disparities, mass incarceration, and recidivism.  In this lecture, Professor González will discuss the growth of the restorative justice movement, its shifting focus, and how restorative justice is currently being used across the United States in a diverse range of systems.  She will also highlight the tensions between aspirational and practical understandings of restorative justice, as well as the versatility of restorative approaches to address some of the most pressing contemporary issues.

Thalia González is an Associate Professor and Chair of the Politics Department at Occidental College. She is also a Visiting Scholar at the UCLA School of Law.  Since 2008, Professor González has examined issues of school discipline and racial disproportionality, with a focus on the implementation of alternative models of discipline and ending the school-to-prison pipeline.  Her work in Denver Public Schools has been nationally recognized and utilized by school districts, county safety councils, community-based organizations, academic institutions, think tanks, bar associations, and scholars.  She regularly​ provides ​ programmatic assessments and advises​ policymakers at the local, county, and state levels. Similarly, based on her research on the Indian Child Welfare Act and status offenders, Professor González has been invited to review state court policy guidelines and rulemakings, and participate in community roundtables.
