Leaders of correctional facilities and programs should be prepared to meet the challenges of changing policies and effectively deal with the management of budgets, grants, cooperative agreements and other inter-governmental projects.

The Graduate Certificate in Corrections Leadership is designed to provide a theoretical and practical knowledge base for correctional practitioners in the areas of criminal justice, public administration and social work. This program may be completed on-line, but not all classes are offered every semester, and not all classes are offered in a sequence that may be convenient for every student.  State employees using a tuition waiver are warned that classes in this program may fill up before state employees are allowed to register.
