"Working in Institutional and Community Corrections," held March 1, 2013, was the first in a series of three presentations for National Criminal Justice Month 2013. The program focused on goals of corrections programs, common misconceptions of work in corrections, differences in probation and parole, training required, most useful college courses for students to take, and career paths in the field of corrections. The event was sponsored by the UAA Justice Center, the Justice Club, and the Pre-Law Society. Photos and additional information about the event can be found on the the Justice Center blog. This program was not audiotaped or videotaped.
