Stepnick Interviewed on National News

Andi Stepnick (Sociology) was interviewed for a Foxnews.com article titled “From Behind Bars to Behind the Counter.” The news piece describes how the transition from prison to life in the community can be supported by employers and educators.

The article quotes Stepnick as asking, “Once people are in prison, they’re going to get out of prison and so are we — as members of the community — going to help facilitate them becoming full and productive members of our communities. When we look at the expenses of recidivism, the financial expenses of recidivism and when we look at the money and the resources that are going into upholding the prison system, we have to make choices as a society where we put our resources.”
