Re-Emerging Scholars Center

The Re-Emerging Scholars program provides support, programming, and classes for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated students as they transition into college.

Students are welcome to drop by our center anytime, join our academic learning community, and/or participate in the Re-Emerging Scholars club.

What We Do

The Re-Emerging Scholars Program provides meaningful intervention in the lives of the formerly incarcerated through educational attainment, pro-social peer networking, direct services, mentoring, as well as personal, professional, and emotional development.

Our program supports new students looking to take steps toward a new path.  Once enrolled in the college, students will receive a needs assessment and be supported toward their academic goals.  Students will be directed toward classes to support personal, educational, and professional development.

In our two-semester Re-Emerging Scholars Learning Community program, students will receive check-ins from faculty, staff, and peer mentors for early intervention and connection to services as needed.  At the conclusion of the two-semester program, students will have completed most of their general education units, built a pathway into an academic and/or career goal, and established connections to employers and community internships, as well as the personal and professional skills needed to be successful in their future endeavors.

Our two-semester learning community program starts every semester and includes*:

Semester One

  • HCD110 Personal Success or HCD310 College Success
  • SOC300 Introduction to Sociology (with a Re-Entry lens)
  • ENGWR108/300 Accelerated College Writing

  • SOC385 Internship in Community Studies
  • STATS110/STAT300 Accelerated Math
