CRJ 523 - Correctional Leadership

3 credit hours
This course explores contemporary corrections management and leadership. The field of corrections, which includes jails, prisons, probation, parole and community correctional organizations, has undergone dramatic changes in the last 20-30 years. No longer is it acceptable to just house and care for this specific population; the public is demanding more from the correctional system. The focus of this class will be to look at how corrections management is changing and review best practices for managers and leaders.
