On May 7, 2020, five Prison Education Project (PEP) students were inducted into Alpha Sigma Lambda, a national nontraditional student honor society. Alpha Sigma Lambda was founded in 1946 by Dr. Rollin B. Posey, Dean of University College at Northwestern University, to recognize adult students who achieve and maintain high scholastic standards while balancing other life responsibilities.
