For those interested in participating in PEP’s academic environment on a limited-term basis, visitors may forego the VIC process and enter the prison up to 5 times.
As a general rule, it is best to finalize all plans at least two weeks in advance of visiting the prison. As guidelines are strict, please consult all rules and procedures when coordinating activities.
As representatives of PEP, we expect all visitors to follow the guidelines that are set forth for permanent faculty.
Step One: Confirm Visit and Purpose
Confirm with PEP administration the purpose of your visit, the date and time, and the VIC who will be accompanying you, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. During your visit to MECC, you must be accompanied by a current Volunteer-in-Corrections (VIC). All current instructors are active VICs, as well as various advisors, faculty, and associated staff.
It may take a week or two for the room and time to be reserved at MECC, so please reach out to PEP administration as early as possible.
Do you have materials that students should review before your visit?
It may take a week or two to get it to the students, so let us know if there is anything we can do to facilitate this.
Step Three: Review Policies
Step Four: Bring Confirmation
Once you have received email confirmation, please print it out and bring it with you for your visit.
