Population Served: Men and women incarcerated within Washington’s adult correctional facilities at Monroe Correctional Complex and Washington Corrections Center for Women

Program Description: UBB’s mission is twofold:
1) to transform Washington’s prisons into communities of learning by providing post-secondary education to the incarcerated, particularly to prisoners of color, and
2) to educate the public about prison issues. Prisoners who have earned their GEDs can choose from two educational pathways in UBB: a certificate pathway and a college pathway.

The former offers a varied menu of not-for-credit courses; the latter offers college courses for credit through Ohio University, primarily at the associate’s degree level. UBB also offers gateway college preparatory courses in math and English and a twice monthly Arts & Lectures series open to all prisoners.
