Bard Prison Initiative
The Bard Prison Initiative (BPI) is a program sponsored by Bard College to provide a liberal arts degree to incarcerated individuals in five different prisons in the U.S. State of New York. It currently enrolls over 200 students full-time in liberal arts programs that end in associate and bachelor's degrees. Since federal funding for prison education programs was eliminated in 1995, the BPI is one of the only college degree granting programs available in U.S. prisons.
