"During my tenure as chief of the Louisiana Office of Juvenile Justice, the Corrections Institute supported our team in a program redesign.  Their research-based knowledge and experience in the field brought a value to the project that only an expert could. I strongly recommend the talented staff of UCCI to guide any organization’s effort toward an alignment with evidence-based practices to reduce recidivism.”
