The Goucher Prison Education Partnership (GPEP), a division of Goucher College, provides men and women incarcerated in Maryland with the opportunity to pursue an excellent college education. We offer Goucher College courses to students at the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women (MCIW) and the Maryland Correctional Institution - Jessup (MCIJ). We also provide college preparatory courses for prospective Goucher students at the prisons needing additional support to be ready for college coursework.
The Goucher Prison Education Partnership is made possible primarily by private grants and individual donations. Some students' educations are also supported in part through the Second Chance Pell Grant pilot. Courses, books, and supplies are provided at no cost to Goucher Prison Education Partnership students.
We are grateful for the support that makes college in prison possible.
