About Corrections to College

Corrections to College was a time-limited, independent initiative designed to transform California’s public higher education system of colleges and universities who serve incarcerated and formerly incarcerated students as part of their mission. From its inception in 2015 to 2020, Corrections to College was a joint project of the Opportunity Institute and the Stanford Criminal Justice Center. Although their partnership with the Opportunity Institute has concluded, their work to support colleges and students working for change in California continues.
