CC History Professor Carol Neel has broken the 20 years of no higher ed in prisons!

(read about it here!)

This semester, longtime history professor and incarcerated peoples' advocate Carol Neel will be bringing a basic humanities course, from Colorado College, to the Pueblo Community College's Youthful Offender System. This is a fantastic opportunity for the students, as all public colleges and universities in Colorado will accept the credit for their core offerings. Further, it is a crucial stepping stone in the path towards the ultimate dream - a wide range of usable college courses in prisons, that help incarcerated people explore their minds and embrace vibrant, creative curiosity.
