Public Policy Clinic Receives U of U Social Justice Award

In April, the College of Law’s Public Policy Clinic received a 2015 University of Utah College of Social Work Moving It Forward Social Justice Award for the clinic’s work to end the school-to-prison pipeline, a set of policies and practices that funnel school children towards the criminal justice system instead of the higher education system. Professor Emily Chiang, the clinic’s director, said, “This award is an incredible honor for the Public Policy Clinic. I am so proud of my students, who have worked tirelessly to improve school discipline policies and graduation rates here in Utah.”
