We conduct use-inspired research in collaboration with our community partners to achieve the following goals:
Train undergraduate and graduate students to develop and carry out solutions-driven research in collaboration with partner agencies. CCS graduates will have the “outside knowledge” of what works in corrections as identified in research and the “inside knowledge” of the perspectives and experience of those who live and work in the correctional system.
Produce and disseminate knowledge that improves service delivery in the correctional system. Develop competitive grant proposals that leverage the interdisciplinary nature of the CCS ASU and National affiliate faculty to support graduate students and faculty research.
Provide evaluation research that leads to solutions to critical problems faced by the correctional system. Develop implications of findings that recognize the constraints of living and working in the correctional system and present to agency partners in digestible briefs and presentations.
