The Washington University Prison Education Project (PEP) provides a high-quality liberal arts education to people incarcerated in and staffing the Missouri Eastern Correctional Center (MECC) in Pacific, Missouri. Our aim is to bring Washington University's intellectual rigor and educational standards to our students in the prison. We offer semester-long college courses, short-term workshops and individual tutoring for incarcerated and staff students. Courses offered through PEP will apply to the associates degree at University College at Washington University and transfer to other institutions. We hope to reach incarcerated individuals at MECC who are not PEP students by offering reading groups, lectures, and other intellectual opportunities to enhance their quality of life and encourage them to continue their education, through PEP or elsewhere.
