The Northwestern Prison Education Program (NPEP) is a partnership between Northwestern University and the Illinois Department of Corrections to provide a high-quality liberal arts education to incarcerated students in the state of Illinois.
NPEP is an interdisciplinary program of study. Courses offered in NPEP are credit-bearing and are taught with content and expectations equivalent to those at Northwestern.
Northwestern faculty members, graduate students, and undergraduates collaborate to provide a range of educational opportunities for incarcerated students, including courses, reading groups, and peer tutoring.
Incarcerated students in NPEP are not charged for tuition or any course-related expenses. Your donation today will help NPEP expand its transformative educational programming to meet the needs of the underserved prison population in Illinois.
