Re-entry Certificate

Reentry is a broad term used to refer to issues related to the transition of offenders from prison to community supervision. Nationwide, 700,000 people are released from correctional custody every year with a 68% recidivism rate within the first three years. Current reentry programs advocate for solutions that will help people returning from prison, obtain employment, connect with their families, and rejoin their communities in an effort to reduce this recidivism rate. This certificate program will prepare students to work in fields related to reentry by providing them an education in the barriers that reduce the likelihood of successful reintegration and in current reentry strategies and characteristics of successful programs.
