Who is TACJE?
The Texas Association of Criminal Justice Educators (TACJE) was created as a venue for discussion and action regarding issues facing criminal justice educators in Texas. A few years ago, the TACJE board decided to deactivate the association with the intention of reactivating it when the need arose. The challenges to higher education caused by COVID-19, nationwide calls for criminal justice reform, and the cancellation of many in-person conferences have created such a need.
After much discussion, a group of Texas criminal justice educators have decided to reactivate TACJE to provide a venue for faculty and graduate students to present and collaborate on research by hosting a virtual conference in 2020.
