gl_standyourgroundThe Glenmont Job Corps Center partnership with the State University of New York Albany continues to encourage intelligent thought and expression.

To culminate this fall’s SUNY Think Tank on October 18, students presented arguments on the “Stand Your Ground” Laws to staff and students. A stand-your-ground law allows defendants to “stand their ground” and use otherwise unlawful force without retreating, in order to protect and defend against threats or perceived threats. The students’ well-prepared statements on the issue were developed after weeks of research.

Presentations were received with applause and all participants were invited to celebrate their accomplishment with refreshments and a certificate.

The Center thanks SUNY Albany for partnering with students to provide a college-level class experience.
