The Legal Studies and Criminal Justice Program celebrated its May 2018 Senior Experience Poster Session on Wednesday, May 2, in Swenson Hall. Thirteen seniors presented their capstone experience to the campus and regional community.  

The capstones featured independent research, Mock Trial and internship experiences.  All seniors created a unifying theme of a key lesson learned during their undergraduate experience at UW-Superior and identified key “ah-ha” moments of their own growth and development over the years. The project that seniors complete is approved by the High Impact Practice Senior Experience at UW-Superior. This poster includes a reflective analysis of the undergraduate collegiate experience as well as an analysis of the senior capstone.

The seniors included Alyssa Amotozio, Darien Bottila, Chris Cassandro, Ben Dorff, Patrick Gustafson, Chelsey Irvin, Todd Knudson, Emily Lear, Melody Maleski, Benjamin Olson, Katrina Phelps, Greg Pitts, and Reggie Semanko.

The event was coordinated by Danielle Fagen, a member of the Center for Continuing Education (CCE) and an adjunct instructor with the Legal Studies and Criminal Justice Program at UW-Superior.  

“Seniors demonstrate their knowledge, skills and abilities through these Senior Experience Posters by showing reflective analytical capacities and being able to clearly present core ideas in written and oral form to a public audience,” said Dr. Maria Stalzer Wyant Cuzzo.  “The Legal Studies and Criminal Justice Program is very proud of the proven capacities of these seniors.”

The program uses Senior Experience as part of its ongoing assessment of student learning.  This portion focuses specifically on oral presentation skills.

The next Legal Studies and Criminal Justice Senior Experience Poster Session will be in December 2018.
