Rowan students 'chase' bad guys as part of IRS Adrian Project


Rowan students experience a day as "agents" for the IRS Criminal Investigation division on November 1 as part of the Adrian Project.

Students from the Accounting Department at Rowan University become “agents for a day” as part of the Internal Revenue Service’s Adrian Project, being held on the Glassboro campus on November 1, 2013.

The Adrian Project is a full-day criminal investigation simulation, giving the students a hands-on learning experience working directly with IRS Special Agents. Participants learn how to ‘follow the money’ in order to catch white collar criminals. Approximately 24 students will work with agents of the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation division from the Newark (NJ) Field Office.

The day starts with a presentation of the case, followed by cells of activity, a class in defensive tactics, surveillance of the suspect, applying for a search warrant and arresting the perpetrators at the end of the day. Students learn and utilize interviewing skills, records analysis, surveillance techniques and more.

The day-long schedule goes from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at various locations on the university campus, 201 Mullica Hill Road in Glassboro, NJ.
