Steve Marcus
Class of 2010

I finished my undergrad at WWS in 2010 and worked for two years in Newark, NJ on prisoner reentry issues. In addition to working on employment challenges with clients returning home from prison, I also drafted municipal and state-level legislation related to criminal background checks, worked with the New Jersey Department of Corrections on in-prison education policy and helped secure a pardon from Governor Christie for a client. I then worked for a year in the Appeals Bureau at the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. I began law school this year at New York University as a Root-Tilden-Kern Public Interest Scholar, where I hope to continue to work on barriers to successful prisoner reentry.

Many thanks to WWS for helping instill the values of public service in me, and equipping me with the tools to help shape a more just society.

Mark Crow, MPA ’08, Major, U.S. Army, Fort Drum, NY, writes:

"I am the Brigade Operations Officer for the 3rd Brigade Combat Team of the 10th Mountain Division in charge of training and preparing nearly 4,000 Soldiers.  We have spent the last 15 months preparing to redeploy to Afghanistan to serve as a Security Force Assistance Brigade.  Rather than conduct traditional counterinsurgency operations, our brigade will be focused on advising and assisting the Afghan National Army and the Afghan National Police in the eastern mountainous provinces of Afghanistan.  Our focus will not only be on their institutional and operational capacity, but also on the linkages between the security forces and the civilian leadership at the provincial level (governors, police chiefs, intelligence services, etc)."
