MVSU professor joins "Prison to College Pipeline" program

August 31, 2018

MVSU History Professor Kathryn Green co-taught a college course this summer to women inmates at Central Mississippi Correctional Facility.

Green received the opportunity as part of the Prison to College Pipeline program, which offers inmates the opportunity to receive college credit for courses they take.

Green worked with Dr. Robby Luckett, a professor at Jackson State University, to teach the course Modern U.S. History.

“The students were so proud of their accomplishments, and they were really good students for the course,” said Green. “I have used the opportunity to talk up MVSU and took examples of curriculum MAPs to show the students, talking about transfer of credit opportunities and programs available at Valley.”

Green said the opportunity was a “wonderful experience” and that she hopes to be able to continue next summer as well as pursue additional educational opportunities for prisoner populations in the state.

The program was sponsored the Mississippi Humanities Council.
