Creating transformative learning opportunities for incarcerated students
Established in 2017, the Incarceration to Education Initiative at Boston College creates transformative learning opportunities within and beyond prison walls. In order to support long-term productive exchanges between the University and community, the initiative also convenes dialogues and catalyzes applied research about critical issues in the justice system.
“A university is inescapably a social force: it must transform and enlighten the society in which it lives.”
Key aspects of the initiative
