Ayanna Lynch (psychology faculty) and Maurice Robinson (alumni, entrepreneur, and communications adjunct) joined us for a trip to Montreal, Canada where we met with a representative from a prison for indigenous people that uses traditional healing practices to improve chances of success reintegration.
