According to the National Institute of Corrections, the correctional workforce is experiencing an attrition of senior level managers leaving a gap in management and leadership at all levels of correctional agencies.
The University of Mary developed the Bachelor of Science in Correctional Management in partnership with the Bureau of Federal Prisons, National Institute of Corrections, and North Dakota Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. This program will prepare correctional practitioners for entry and junior level management positions, as well as providing advanced training for attaining higher levels of management.
The program provides a practical, theoretical perspective and a dynamic hands-on application of knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to be successful at all managerial levels within the correctional field. Graduates of this program will be prepared to influence policies, practices, and operations as well as effectively manage local, state, or federal correctional programs and facilities.
