The AUM Alumni Advantage

“I chose to complete my graduate degree at Auburn University Montgomery (AUM), because they had and still have the premiere criminal justice degree programs in Alabama. The successful completion of a Master of Science in Justice and Public Safety [now Criminal Justice] degree at AUM positioned me for the role I now serve as a Deputy Commissioner. In fact, out of the 14 executive staff members currently serving the ADOC, three of us have the same degree from AUM. Without the education that I received at AUM, I would not have been guaranteed the professional opportunities that I’ve enjoyed throughout my career in the ADOC.”
— Dr. Wendy Williams, Deputy Commissioner, Women’s Services, Alabama Department of Corrections
“The completion of a Master of Science in Justice and Public Safety degree at Auburn University at Montgomery positioned me for the role I serve as an Associate Commissioner, and as I work with professionals within Alabama and on the national level.”
— Steve Watson, Associate Commissioner, Plans and Programs, Alabama Department of Corrections
