Bringing Out The Best in Tomorrow’s Corrections Leaders.
By Mountain State University
According to a recent article written by the Florida Department of Corrections, the way to advance your career in the Department is through merit and integrity; a standard shared by most agencies in corrections. Add to that a desire and a drive to lead and you have the makings of a future corrections leader.
Some agencies and colleges are even offering classes to bring out the best in these rising stars. Among the agency stand-outs are the Nebraska Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and, last year, the Florida Department of Corrections, which graduated 28 from their inaugural Corrections Supervisory Leadership Class.
Beyond the single class, some practitioners are taking it to the next level, boosting their skills and their resume with a formal leadership degree. Mountain State University has designed two unique online, accredited leadership degrees tailor made for corrections practitioners, a Masters of Science in Strategic Leadership and a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership. Online students learn to motivate others to work together and produce positive results without trekking to a campus or disrupting their current schedules.
