Intelligence For Dummies 2007

J.L. Kibitlewski, Ph.D.

An argument for including “intelligence” courses in a comprehensive criminal justice program.

If we view acts of terrorism as both criminal and political it is only natural then that an intelligence course be included in a criminal justice degree program.

The argument will address the types of subject matter inclusion and how it relates to being a critical ingredient in today’s changing environment for criminal justice professionals.

Additionally, it will discuss the manner in which other disciplines are included and how the lines of delineation have become blurred.

2. Bruce, Susan., Schwartz, Audrey. and Dominelli, Angela. "Title: ACPE Standards 2007 and Curricular Revisions: Factors to Consider." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort, Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Jul 14, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-12-09 <>
Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: Objectives: The Curriculum Committee is in the process of reviewing the curriculum and ACPE Standards to determine the best method for approaching necessary curricular changes. To inform that process, the Committee surveyed other colleges of pharmacy to determine how they approached curricular revision, factors influencing revision decisions, and how they are ensuring compliance with ACPE Standards.
Methods: An e-mail was sent to 47 Curriculum Committee Chairs at other colleges of pharmacy. Recipients were asked to complete an on-line 13 question survey. Responses were voluntary and anonymous.
Results: The response rate was 34% (n=16). Respondents indicate the last major revision to their curriculum took place 5 or more years ago (44%) and the change was prompted by accreditation requirements (50%). Also, 62.5% will modify their existing curricula, 12.5% will develop a new curriculum, 12.5% will leave the curriculum alone, and 12.5% are unsure of the extent of changes. The faculty-led Curriculum Committee is responsible for curricular revision (94%). Barriers to curricular change include faculty workload (50%), lack of faculty acceptance of proposals for change (37.5%), and vacancies in key development or decision making positions (19%).
Implications: Recently revised ACPE curriculum standards are a driving force leading many schools of pharmacy to re-evaluate their curriculum for the first time in a number of years. Former proactive curricular revisions have served schools well as they now consider the ACPE Standards. Support for faculty in terms of standards review and workload considerations should be considered during this process.

Abstract: Abstract

Preparations for and the conduct of the April 2007 elections in Nigeria were greeted with criticisms and expression of pessimism. This lack of trust in the process at and the outcomes was exacerbated by the overt and covert measures by the government through the electoral body, to subvert the rule of law. Acrimonious intra-class struggle for political power among the various factions of the ruling class led to political scheming to exclude some candidates from participating in the elections. The Nigerian political environment provides the template for such political cauldron as the abuse of the power of incumbency by the ruling political party ha become an entrenched political culture. Generally, the judiciary remains the only statutory organ that protects the rights of the citizens against despotism and anarchy by the political branches. The resurgence of judicial activism in the Nigerian judiciary in recent times has raised the optimism that it can reclaim its seemingly lost status as the citizens’ bulwark against the invasion of liberty.
This paper takes a review of the series of judicial intervention in the preparations for and the conduct of the 2007 elections in Nigeria. Judicial review of the decisions of the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) has shattered the orchestrated plan to construct an hegemonic structure within the strata of the ruling political party as well as in the national political landscape through the politics of exclusion. It has been discovered that judicial activism has elevated the judiciary from its weak position to the status of a true pillar for democratic consolidation in Nigeria. If this is sustained, the precedents would serve as reference points for further adjudication in the Nigerian political system.
