Since 2008, EJP has created opportunities for incarcerated individuals, University of Illinois graduate students, campus faculty, and community members to participate in academic programming at Danville Correctional Center. Our college-in-prison consists of 12 distinct programs, each with its own members and application procedures. All are overseen by EJP’s Academic Director, Ellen Ritter. You’ll find information about each program below. For information about EJP’s application procedures, please visit the “Get Involved” page.
