The program has been sculpted to capture the most current leadership focuses and core competencies as identified by the National Institute of Corrections. Furthermore, great effort has been made in seeking the input and guidance from field practitioners and leadership in determining program relevancy and its ability to meet and measure up to its intended design and purpose.
