Lead with perspective.

No program is going to make you a great leader.  The best an academic program can do is to give you material you can use as you practice and develop as a leader. What we can do is to help you gain knowledge and perspective. To be an effective leader, you need to know who came before you and what they did.  You need understand the Constitutional core of criminal justice. You need to grasp the concepts that govern the development and maintenance of an enduring legacy of justice for the people you lead and serve. You need to know how to gather the right kinds of information to make decisions about future directions. This program delivers the knowledge and perspective you need to become an effective leader in a criminal justice or law enforcement organization.

The program is designed for working professionals who perhaps have changing schedules and family responsibilities.  What this mean is that we’ve decided to offer the program 100% online — asynchronously.  So, you are not required to be online at any specific time.  Each week, generally, what you need to do is to log into your class, read, watch some videos, post discussions, and write short papers. You’ll spend approximately 10-12 hours a week on your assignments, but you’ll do it when it fits your schedule.
