Center for Correctional Solutions

Learn more about your impact

Your generosity to the ASU Center for Correctional Solutions supports those who serve in corrections and those who are served. You will enable research that reduces recidivism and education that enables students to be leaders within the correctional system.

At the Center for Correctional Solutions, we believe it is important that our work include the perspectives and experiences of people who work or live in the system. Our goal is to create a just and fair approach to corrections that repairs harm, empowers people and promotes public safety. Your support will also enable the center to serve an underserved population, equipping them with the tools to be successful.

My favorite memory from my time with CCS was during an Inside-Out class at the women’s facility. After four years of volunteering, researching, and teaching in prison, I heard a woman reflecting on her experience in our class and say, 'I am excited about life again' with tears in her eyes."
