My name is Dr. June Terpstra. This is my website for students everywhere.  I began teaching at Northwestern University in 1986 until 1993 and I have been teaching ever since at a variety of universities including CSU Global, Arizona State West, Columbia College Chicago, Northeastern Illinois University and Loyola University Chicago. Concurrent with teaching in major universities in the USA, I developed and directed a shelter program for abused women and children, abuse prevention projects for elementary and high school students, a youth center in Chicago, and anti-discrimination programs for universities in Illinois and California.  My work as an advocate for justice and equity for all people led me to focus my teaching in Justice Studies and Criminal Justice for the past 15 years. I am presently teaching Justice Studies full time at Northeastern Illinois University where I teach courses such as Justice and Inequality, Law and Terrorism and Theories of Justice and Social Change.  I formally attended Governors State University in Illinois where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Language and Literature and a Masters of Arts in the Social Sciences.  I completed my doctoral degree at Loyola University Chicago in Sociology.  Global justice, race, and ethnic relations, ethics and justice as healing have been the primary focus of my research, teaching and community advocacy and organizing!  Additionally, during the past 20 years I provided expert testimony in court cases; participated in research projects in Venezuela, Cuba, Greece, England, Belgium, Navajo Nation, the US, and Italy, and wrote for independent media outlets in the USA and Italy. I hope you find this website helpful.  Dr. Terpstra
