At the core of the Education Justice Project’s work at Danville prison are our for-credit course offerings. Each semester, on Friday evenings, University of Illinois instructors teach upper-division (300- and 400-level) courses to men incarcerated at the correctional center. Class enrollment is limited to 15 students to ensure a high-quality learning experience. Instructors represent a wide range of disciplines. Examples of previous courses offered include Russian Revolution, Life Sciences in an Evolving World, Shakespeare’s Worlds, and Environmental Sustainability. Students have the option of receiving academic support at tutoring sessions held in the EJP resource rooms three times each week.

We accept applications for course instructors twice a year, in March and October. The next application deadline is Friday March 1, 2013. For more information contact EJP’s Course Coordinator Maggie Kainulainen, kainula2@illinois.edu.
