Participate in TUPIT Events

Every year, TUPIT organizes a series of programs about issues related to justice and U.S. incarceration. Drawing heavily on the expertise of formerly incarcerated people, these events, designed to educate our on-campus community, are free and open to the public. Community education is especially important for a program like TUPIT that aims to support the continuation of a student’s education after prison as well, first through the MyTERN reentry program and, in some cases, next, through the bachelor’s and advanced degree programs at Tufts University.

“Partakers advances the education of women and men in prison and bridges the divide that separates those inside and outside of prison. Through its College Behind Bars mentoring program, people in prison enhance skills critical to completing a college degree and build trusting personal relationships. Both activities significantly increase prisoners’ chances for success when returning to the community.”
