U of S forensic centre opens

The new Centre for Forensic Behavioural Sciences and Justice Studies at the U of S celebrated its official opening June 20 with a ribbon cutting and reception for its many faculty, student, government and community supporters and collaborators.

Stephen Wormith, centre director and former chair in forensic psychology, acknowledged the centre's university and government partners that include the Colleges of Arts and Science, Law, Medicine, and Nursing, the Correctional Service Canada, and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Corrections, Public Safety and Policing. Also speaking at the event, Harley Dickinson, vice-dean of the Division of Social Sciences, expressed enthusiasm for the vital role the centre will play in building further research and training capacity.

The centre was created with a broad mandate that includes supporting interdisciplinary research, education and activities aimed at understanding critical issues of crime and justice. The centre will also serve to showcase existing campus expertise and provide a gateway to information, knowledge and enquiry across the broad domains of crime, justice and corrections.
