Twenty men earn college degrees while incarcerated at Maine State Prison

Since it’s inception, the partnership of the University of Maine Augusta and the Maine State prison system has been a successful one. In fact, the recidivism rate of individuals who achieve a degree while in college drops to almost zero. This past week, MEOC was proud to attend the graduation ceremony for 20 men who completed either their Associates or Bachelor’s degree. Congratulations to all involved!
