“No other school is this specialized in the criminal justice area and has a Forensic Psychology curriculum dedicated towards justice like John Jay has.”—Ayanna Miller-Smith When Ayanna transferred to John Jay, she knew that this was where she would build her career. "I came to John Jay in the middle of my sophomore year and ended up doing an extra year here," she says. "This is where I got all my internships, did research and figured out what I wanted to do." What Miller-Smith found was a passion for research. With the help of the Ronald E. McNair PostBaccalaureate Achievement Program, and her McNair mentor Zelma Henriques, Ph.D., Miller-Smith conducted research on the portrayal of police brutality on social media and its effects on populations. "My research stems from a tweet I made when I came across the Philando Castile video. When I saw the video, I didn't even click on it. It started playing automatically on my timeline and I didn't have the choice to engage in this content," she says. "Talking to my peers, I realized that we all felt anxious because it was too much to take in." McNair helped focus her interests and gave her the confidence to present at the 2019 Research and Creativity Expo and Black Doctoral Network Conference where she won an Honorable Mention Award. Inspired by her research, Miller-Smith will be completing her Ph.D. in Criminology and Justice Policy at @northeastern. Her hope is to influence criminal justice policy through her research and become a professor one day. "I believe in mentorship and I want to continue the pipeline of students of color into graduate school." #JJCStudentSuccess #FierceAdvocates #JJCResearch #JJCAlumni #MyJohnJay #JohnJayCollege

"John Jay as an institution is very student centered and the student representation that goes into all the College decisions often comes from Student Council. So, I decided to run for President to ensure that students are properly represented for all decisions that are made for the College. Something that I am eager to do is make the student council more visible to the student body. In terms of specific projects, I would like to increase the amount of water bottle refilling stations across the campus and make John Jay a greener campus in terms of recycling and sustainable behaviors. I would also like to make sure that different projects from last year, like installing more computer stations and the over-night laptop policy, are followed through during this next academic year." —Musarrat Lamia '21, @jjccouncil President #FierceAdvocates #MyJohnJay #JohnJayCollege #JJCStudents

It was Brooklyn's Finest versus the Bronx Bombers at the New York Police Department Basketball Championship Game held at #JohnJayCollege on May 23. Law enforcement officials came to the College for the last game of the tournament, and for our two competing alumni—both on the Brooklyn's Finest team—it was a time to catch up and return to the place where they began their careers. With an audience full of alumni, law enforcement officials, family members and young people, there was a packed house ready to cheer on both teams. • With just nine seconds left on the clock, the Bronx Bombers took a shot at the basket but missed. As the clock ticked to zero, the crowd exploded with excitement as the Brooklyn's Finest became the 2019 Champions of the Police Commissioners Sports League Basketball Tournament. To congratulate the team, Deputy Commissioner Ganley, came to the court, said a few words applauding their performance, and handed them the winning trophy. • After the game, we spoke with the two John Jay alumni, to learn what it was like to play at John Jay again. Read about Ryan Olsen and Emilio Gomez's experiences on our news page (link in bio). #NYPD #FierceAdvocates #JJCAlumni #MyJohnJay #GoBloodhounds

"One of my favorite moments in the LLS department was taking part in the Study Abroad program to Cuba. Being in Cuba at such an important time—we went in 2015 when the U.S. was considering reopening the embassy—was so informative. I’m very grateful for that. We have professors here in this department with such great experiences and diverse backgrounds, both in nationality and in the work they’ve done. Having a faculty like that teach us brings the educational experience to a whole different level. I also just love the pure history that we learn in these Latino studies courses, because it’s the history I feel we should have been taught in school. But I’m grateful that I took on this major and was able to learn more about the Latinx culture." -Eduardo E. Garcia ’19, B.A. in Latin American and Latina/o Studies • #JJCGrad #JohnJayHSI #Latinx #JohnJayCollege #MyJohnJay #JJCAbroad #Cuba [Image Description: Eduardo smiles at the viewer during LLS’s end-of-year celebration in Moot Court.]

"Being recognized for my achievements while being a student here, has given me the opportunity to feel prouder of what I have done—my accomplishments, my service to the country, and my service to the school’s veterans. I’m going to start working as a human resources manager for Securitas, a private security company here in Manhattan. It’s a good position and I’m excited to start my new career." -Charles Bernal ’19, T-Mobile Veteran Commencement Award Recipient (Graduate), United States Marine Corps, 2018-2019 President of the Veteran Association at John Jay College #FierceAdvocates #JohnJayVets #JJCGrad #MyJohnJay #JohnJayCollege #MarineCorps

John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the City University of New York ( #CUNY ) had extra cause for celebration when graduates received their diplomas at John Jay’s Commencement ceremonies on May 29, 2019. Among those who completed their bachelor’s degrees were the first participants in CUNY’s Accelerate, Complete and Engage ( @johnjayace ) program, conceived to provide students with financial resources and structured supports that would help them complete a bachelor’s degree in four years. • “My top priority is our students’ success, and the ACE program shows the potential for dramatically improving retention and credit completion rates using carefully designed strategies,” said Karol V. Mason, president of John Jay College of Criminal Justice. “Being the first four-year CUNY college to initiate the ACE program gives me great pride, made even more special as I watched our first four-year ACE graduates walk across the stage at Commencement.” #JJCStudentSuccess #JohnJayCollege #MyJohnJay #JohnJayAce19 #JJCGrad

There are a lot of things that LIFT (Legal Information for Families Today) and #JohnJayCollege have in common. Both LIFT and John Jay aim to make justice and education accessible to everyone, regardless of income, race, gender, status, or sexual orientation. And, both LIFT and John Jay reach out to underrepresented populations, especially low-income households, to help them better their lives. Appreciating these similar objectives, LIFT honored John Jay President Karol V. Mason at their Gala on May 15. Four @johnjaypli students were invited as guest of Wendy Dessy, @liftonline Board of Directors Member, and @proskauer_rose. The students, Nicolette Brown, Shanil Capellan, Kelly Huie, and Sharna McKenzie, all enjoyed meeting the attorneys, judges, and advocates at the event, as they nibbled on hors d’oeuvres and took in the City view from the roof deck.

"I’ve been coming to John Jay since I was seven, because my father, Felipe Rodriguez, is an adjunct professor in the Department of Law, Police Science and Criminal Justice Administration. Winning this award, shows that my hard work has paid off. Getting a 4.0 GPA wasn’t easy, there were a lot of sleepless nights and missing out on social events, but this moment has shown me that it’s all worth it. I’m looking forward to doing marketing and business development for a private security company called DGA, and coming back to John Jay to get my master’s degree." -Cassandra Rodriguez ’19, T-Mobile Veteran Commencement Award Recipient (Undergraduate), United States Coast Guard #FierceAdvocates #JohnJayVets #JJCGrad #MyJohnJay #JohnJayCollege #CoastGuard

Congratulations to Jasmine Awad, the Student Council President with a major in Criminal Justice and a minor in Human Services, who has risen to the top of her class to become the 2019 Valedictorian! • Aspiring to advocate for criminal justice involved youth, Awad plans to get her master's degree in social work and public policy. "There are many problems youth face when they are incarcerated at a young age and not given the chance for rehabilitation," she says. "When you find out the reasons for why they are in prison, it's incredibly disheartening. Whether it's advocating for youth directly, or working to create policy change, I would like to help them." #JJCGrad #FierceAdvocates #JohnJayCollege #MyJohnJay

“Often times we are taught our stories do not matter, but I know that they do. My research project will shine a light on the stories I intend to tell, on behalf of those that cannot speak for themselves.
