What others are saying about USI's Criminal Justice Program

"The success I have had in the past from USI students I’ve hired has been amazing. This position not only assists victims going through the court process with a better understanding, but also counsels, listens and tries to assist a victim with determining which local resources are available to them to improve their situation. My USI students have proven themselves to be caring and committed individuals for this office."
