Mike Stefanko ('70) states that he has mixed volunteering for SURF with a project for the Association for Criminal Justice Research (CA). I was a session chair at both the Summer SURF Seminar Day and the recent SURF Seminar Day. It is inspiring to hear about the quality research these undergraduates do during their summer. My other volunteer work was assisting in the design of a new website for this research organization (www.acjrca.org) and keeping adding information for an upcoming conference.
