The Juvenile Justice Institute (JJI) Promotes Best Practices in Juvenile Justice

JJI provides technical assistance and completes policy and program evaluations for state and local agencies, as well as private organizations.


JJI also partners with policymakers, practitioners and criminal justice faculty to explore the most effective and practical juvenile justice strategies and programs. The Institute encourages the development of future criminal justice professionals by providing university students with unique educational and research opportunities. Our office's location in Lincoln enables us to work closely with state government entities as well as students enrolled in classes at UNL. Learn more about our current projects.
