Meeting of the Minds Speaker
Co-Founder & Director
Education Justice Project
Rebecca Ginsburg is co-founder and current director of the Education Justice Project (EJP), a comprehensive college-in-prison program based at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
EJP offers for-credit courses and extracurricular activities at two state prisons. It also conducts outreach to family members of incarcerated people; hosts a scholarship program; and produces Illinois’ only comprehensive reentry guide, which is distributed in prisons throughout the state. Almost one hundred “free” EJP members are involved each semester delivering these programs. They, along with incarcerated EJP students, also produce scholarship on higher education in prison and related topics.
