Community Engagement Activity
Inside-Out Prison Exchange brings DePaul students and inmates together to learn as peers, engaging in a variety of topics depending on the faculty member and the course offering. DePaul students visit the Cook County jail and Stateville prison weekly to express solidarity with those who live in the most dire circumstances. The Inside-Out Program increases opportunities for women and men, inside and outside of prison, to have transformative learning experiences that emphasize collaboration and dialogue, inviting participants to take leadership in addressing gender, race, class, incarceration, and other issues of social justice. All students involved in the program earn couse credit.

We’re also the nation’s largest Catholic university — and we’re committed to an educational experience that weaves together mind, place, people and heart.
