Cohort-Based Learning Community

A learning community for formerly incarcerated and justice-impacted students to complete personal, professional, and educational development courses with supportive faculty, staffing, and counseling toward transfer and career.

Students are enrolled in coordinated transfer-level courses:

  • College Success
  • Accelerated English Writing
  • Sociology (with re-entry lens)
  • Personal Finance or Accelerated Math/STATs
  • Marriage and Family
  • Internship
  • Nutrition
  • Public Speaking
  • an additional group study course

After their first year, cohort students can be nearly 75% of the way through their General Education requirements.


Two campus clubs for all formerly incarcerated and system-impacted students to:

  • engage with Re-Emerging Scholars
  • find community and fellowship
  • continue to build a pro-social network
  • support sobriety
  • engage in advocacy
  • attend campus and community events
