We work on a wide range of projects at various prison locations, on campus at the UO, and in the community. These projects include:


For-Credit Courses

Incarcerated students earn UO credits both through taking Inside-Out courses and through occasional readings/correspondence courses. Some participants are actively pursuing Bachelor's Degrees. 

Academic Workshops and Events

In an effort to reach a wide range of incarcerated individuals, we host regular academic workshops, talks by professors, discussion groups between inmate clubs and UO student organizations, and talks from speakers who visit both the UO campus and the prisons. 

Alumni Activities 

PEP interns and other UO students and alumni have created and run multiple projects in the local community. These are primarily centered on serving youth, including those who are in juvenile detention.
