Our mission is to provide a rigorous college program to incarcerated women in Washington and create pathways to higher education after women are released from prison.
We are committed to teaching college courses equivalent to those at accredited universities in Washington.
Students in our program earn credit toward an Associate of Arts and Science degree. Our classes are taught by professors from the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma Community College, Evergreen State College, University of Washington, and Pacific Lutheran University. All of our professors have an M.A or Ph.D.
We are a member of the Bard Prison Initiative National Consortium for the Liberal Arts in Prison, a national network of universities and colleges (Wesleyan University, Notre Dame, Grinnell, and Washington University) that run college-in-prison programs.
