AI Responsible Use Guidelines

At John Jay College of Criminal Justice, we recognize the transformative potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in shaping the future of work, creative processes, and, importantly, the pursuit of justice in its many dimensions. Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a technology that uses machine learning and predictive modeling to create new content, ideas, conversations, images, videos, and music, based on the data it is trained on.

Generative AI is a powerful tool for research and scholarship, and its effective use is becoming an essential workplace skill. We believe that fostering AI literacy across all disciplines is an extension of our mission to prepare students for meaningful careers and ethical leadership within the justice system and beyond.

These guidelines – which we will update as AI uses and knowledge change – are intended to provide guidance to John Jay students and faculty as they consider the pros and cons of learning to use or teaching and guiding students in the uses of AI.
