National Institute of Corrections

National Institute of Corrections Seal

The mission of NIC is to advance public safety by shaping and enhancing correctional policies and practices through leadership, learning, and innovation.

Who does NIC serve?

NIC is dedicated to providing specialized and direct corrections training and resources to line staff, administration, and researchers in tribal, local, state, and federal corrections agencies. NIC does not serve non-governmental corrections organizations (such as private prisons and non-profit programs). 

What does NIC Do?

NIC provides training through our catalog of data-driven research as well as our online Learning Management System. We have corrections experts and researchers on staff to answer questions. We also provide technical assistance (on-site training) to agencies and facilities to help evolve their practices in ways that benefit their operations and their communities. We also provide leadership and data to help advance correctional policies, procedures, practices, and operations nationwide.
