Prison Education

Graduate students in the Department of Philosophy at Western Michigan University are developing a Prison Education Outreach Project, through which graduate students provide content modeled after traditional college courses to incarcerated individuals. The project’s mission is to educate, challenge, and inspire these individuals to achieve their academic, personal and professional goals. Additionally, graduate student mentors are offered an excellent opportunity to develop pedagogical skills by mentoring a diverse population in a non-traditional classroom setting.
