The Rombach Institute on Crime, Delinquency and Corrections was originally founded in 1997 through the generous support of the late Lionel E. Rombach.  The mission of this Institute has always been to advance the knowledge, pursuit and evaluation of significant public policy issues as they relate to the field of criminal justice.  The Institute has, and continues, to provide student financial assistance; supports public policy research through reports, conferences and publications; assists State criminal justice officials with evaluation, analysis and training; and presents student and faculty awards and fellowships.

The Institute is best summarized through the following points:

  1. Organizing significant experts across the University to work in coordination with the Institute.
  2. Affiliating with and reaching out to relevant community and criminal justice organizations for involvement with, and sponsorship of, Institute activities.
  3. Sponsoring and supporting activities of clubs for university students.
  4. Writing, organizing and coordinating statements on cutting edge public policy issues pertaining to the field of criminal justice and its’ operations to be disseminated to local and national news outlets as well as academic journals and organizations.
  5. Organizing semi-annual conferences, lectures or meetings for the dissemination of information by local or national leaders in criminal justice to local and national constituencies, student groups and community organizations.
  6. Assisting in the development and awarding of scholarships to graduate and undergraduate students as the money becomes available from the Rombach funds.
