SUNY Prison Education Programs

SUNY Prison Education Programs

Many of our SUNY campuses are located in communities with correctional facilities, and their proximity to one another allows for collaboration between SUNY and the NYS Department of Corrections and Community Supervision. SUNY campuses now have a presence in nearly half of the state’s 53 prisons.
