Bulmer Auditorium is in the BTC Center which is located in the large campus building nearest to the street.
The presentation will feature an overview of Restorative Justice by Professor David Karp of Skidmore College, followed by a reactor panel that will include people whose lives have been impacted by violence, the criminal justice system, or who have worked in the criminal justice system.
There will be an opportunity for audience members to ask questions and also to meet the presenters informally in a reception that will follow the presentation.
