Leadership in law enforcement and the military is a key attribute that our students acquire.
Our exceptional programs in criminal justice, military science and leadership feature faculty who blend practical personal knowledge and experience with theory. We support our students in their development, give them training so they have the know-how for success, and prepare them for leadership roles in exciting careers.
In addition to educating traditional students, we focus on providing opportunities for those currently in criminal justice positions.
