Jeremy Travis has served as president of John Jay College of Criminal Justice at the City University of New York since 2004. Prior to his appointment, he was a Senior Fellow in the Urban Institute’s Justice Policy Center, where he launched a national research program focused on prisoner reentry into society. From 1994-2000, Travis directed the National Institute of Justice, the research arm of the U.S. Department of Justice. As a national voice from criminal justice reform, he has advocated for an end to the era of mass incarceration, adoption of new responses to crime that do not rely on the criminal sanction, and a reconciliation process that recognizes the adverse impact of the justice system on communities of color.
