Welcome to EJP

The mission of the Education Justice Project is to build a model college-in-prison program that demonstrates the positive impacts of higher education upon incarcerated people, their families, the communities from which they come, the host institution, and society as a whole.

EJP is committed to building an open, inclusive learning environment and to transparent, collaborative governance. We believe that critical self-reflection is an important part of creating and sustaining a healthy program climate.

You can read the executive summary of Becoming an Educated Man, a recent evaluation of EJP’s impacts on our incarcerated students, here.

From October 10 – 12, 2014 EJP will host Strategies for Action, a national conference on prison higher education. Registration is now open!
