Well worth investigating
The very name of the College gives you a valuable clue about the caliber of our team of experts: the Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences. One of the foremost experts in his field, Dr. Lee has worked on such high- profile cases as the O.J. Simpson murder trial, the JonBenét Ramsey case, and the investigation of Scott Peterson.
With Dr. Lee at the helm, it sets the bar very high for the rest of our faculty, but it’s a challenge they’re up to. In most cases, our professors are either coming from years in the field or are still actively working in it. Because of this, they have the unique ability to not only impart knowledge but frame it with its real-world application.
A $9.4 million facility
The Henry C. Lee Institute is a new state-of-the-art center for forensic science and a go-to resource for law enforcement agencies around the globe. It incorporates working crime scene labs and high-tech visual displays and offers high-level, technologically based training for law enforcement officers, prosecutors, judges, teachers, and students. It also houses an extensive forensic archive.
