The Cold Case Unit is a unique opportunity for students to partner with criminologists, academics, and practitioners across the state to solve real crimes that bring closure to real families. It is our mission to be victim-centered and offender-focused.

If you would like to support this collaboration, please contact Alex Tripp.


This experience will help my collaboration in the formal workplace with real-world experience, and the diversity in backgrounds and viewpoints has led to deep conversations that inspire growth. It has also shown me how important the field we are in and confirmed my path.
