Prof. S. David Mitchell presented on ex-offender reentry and reintegration to the Mayor’s Task Force on Community Violence in Columbia. The presentation discussed the profiles of ex-offenders returning to the area from Missouri Department of Corrections data obtained during the year that he served as a Missouri Supreme Court Faculty Fellow.

Prof. Mitchell highlighted the following recommendations for improving the chances of ex-offenders successfully reentering society: increasing the number of offenses eligible for expungement; “banning the box” on employment applications; increasing immediate stability upon release, especially housing; and increasing pathways to economic security.
