Their work is never done

Just this week our UIS Illinois Innocence Project hosted its 5th annual Defenders of the Innocent Awards Reception at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Springfield. The Illinois Innocence Project works to exonerate individuals who are innocent of the serious crimes for which they have been incarcerated and, at the same time provides students with a hands-on learning experience of great value to their education. I am very proud of the collaboration and the work that is put into their efforts. As Larry Golden will tell you, their work is never done. I like that philosophy!
