Monday’s announcement expands the relationship between the University of South Carolina and the U.S. Department of Justice begun 13 years ago. In 1996, DOJ and university officials broke ground on the National Advocacy Center on the university campus. That $26 million facility, which opened in 1998, is a training site for more than 10,000 federal, state and local prosecutors from around the country each year and is named for former U.S. Sen. Ernest F. “Fritz” Hollings.

In May 1999, the National College of District Attorneys moved its headquarters to the center.
