The Prison Program at Saint Louis University is a Jesuit-inspired initiative that provides access to high-quality liberal arts education for people who are incarcerated and prison staff.
The program has three primary projects at facilities in the greater St. Louis region:
Higher education in prison is transformative. The SLU Prison Program is changing the lives of incarcerated people, prison staff, their families and the community.
Recidivism rate. Students in the Prison Program do not return to prison after release.
People are reached each year by the Prison Program.
Participants in the Prison Program since 2008.
Annual encounters between the SLU community and those incarcerated/working in prisons.
