For-credit courses form the heart of EJP’s program at Danville Correctional Center. University of Illinois instructors from disciplines as varied as Anthropology, Engineering, Art History, and Biology offer upper-division (300- and 400-level) classes to eligible men incarcerated at the prison. Enrollment is limited to 15 students to ensure a high-quality learning experience. Previous courses include Russian RevolutionLife Sciences in an Evolving WorldShakespeare’s Worlds, and Environmental Sustainability. Classes are held on Friday evenings, following the academic schedule of the Illinois campus. Students have the option of receiving academic support at tutoring sessions held in the EJP resource rooms three times a week.

 

Passing students receive University of Illinois credit. We do not confer degrees.

 

We accept applications for course instructors twice a year, in March and October.  For more information or to obtain an application, contact EJP’s Course Coordinator Laura Giffin at giffin.laura@gmail.com.
