Convocation 2017: Matty Taghipour, BA, advocating for restorative justice

June 08, 2017

As Matty Taghipour graduates with a BA in criminology, not only has she earned top marks in academics, but also top marks in community engagement from her peers and faculty.

During her undergraduate studies Taghipour made time to lead the SFU Restorative Justice Club, which hosts events highlighting the value of restorative justice.

Taghipour’s interest and advocacy in this area stems from a foundational course in restorative justice, when she realized not all crimes have to go through the criminal justice system.
