Gala and Exhibition for NPEP

Undergraduate Prison Education Partnership
John Evans Center
Saturday, Oct 19, 2019 at 3:00 PM (CT) to Saturday, Oct 19, 2019 at 5:00 PM (CT)

“Transformation Through Education”

The Northwestern Prison Education Program (NPEP) and its undergraduate affiliate, the Undergraduate Prison Education Partnership (UPEP), are hosting their first annual Gala and Exhibition for Prison Education to bring together alumni, faculty, and valued members of the community to celebrate the accomplishments of the Northwestern Prison Education Program at Stateville Correctional Center and Cook County Department of Corrections.

The Gala and Exhibition will feature light appetizers, a silent auction, and keynote speakers, to include the Director of NPEP, Jennifer Lackey, and Andre Joachim, a formerly incarcerated PhD candidate. Messages, writing, and artwork by Stateville prisoners receiving college credit through our program will be proudly shared with our guests during the Exhibition.

NPEP is a partnership between Northwestern University and the Illinois Department of Corrections to provide a liberal arts education to the incarcerated community at Stateville Correctional Center. NPEP works to provide educational opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable to the incarcerated community to lower recidivism rates and improve quality of life.

UPEP supports NPEP and its mission by hosting fundraising and campus awareness events on the Evanston campus, organizing workshops for the Stateville student cohort, and providing tutors and academic supplies for the program.

General admission and Supporter status tickets are available. Supporter status ticketholders receive reserved, priority seating and a thank-you gift. We look forward to seeing you!
