Temple senior, Kiryl Marchuk, is a Criminal Justice major in the College of Liberal Arts. This past Spring, he participated in the Temple University’s Institute for Public Affairs, PA Capital Semester. This program allows students to have the opportunity to explore government affairs, policymaking and implementation first-hand while being full-time students and staying on track for graduation. During his time at the internship, Kiryl helped create legislation called the Corrections Investment Act . The “Corrections Investment Act” consisted of a simple formula, reducing the state’s high recidivism rate and saving taxpayers’ dollars on corrections by providing small tax breaks for employers who hire ex-offenders.
