The ceremony was followed by a dessert reception attended by initiates, parents and Sociology and Criminal Justice Studies faculty. In addition, Mr. Jeff Simmons and Ms. Wilma Oman presented a colloquium entitled "Immigration Justice: Reflections from the Borderlands." Simmons and Oman shared observations from their recent trip to the US-Mexican border, including the perils of the desert crossing, the activities of humanitarian and sanctuary programs and the impacts of the criminal justice system on immigrant families.
