“When I'm on campus it reminds me of home because there are wooded areas all around. You can walk out of your residence hall and immediately enjoy a stroll on the walking paths through the forest. It's really nice to not have tall city buildings everywhere.”

Dr. Karen Lischinsky Featured in 'New York Times' Article on Restorative Justice
July 28, 2014
Dr. Karen Lischinsky, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice and Sociology at Curry College has once again been recognized for her work with the Massachusetts Restorative Justice Collaborative at the Massachusetts Correctional Institution (MCI) in Norfolk.
A recent article in The New York Times describes Dr. Lischinsky's work at MCI Norfolk, which helps to bring perpetrators and victims of violent crime together for a dialogue to facilitate healing, among other desired outcomes. In the fall of 2014, Massachusetts will pilot a curriculum on restorative justice state-wide.
From the article:
"It tries to make things not right - but at least more right," said Karen Lischinsky, a sociologist and volunteer coordinator of the prison's restorative-justice group, which helped facilitate the gathering. "Nothing will bring back those killed."
