The Georgia Coalition for Higher Education in Prison (GACHEP) builds high-quality educational pathways, from pre-college coursework to accredited degree completion, for people who are in prison and people who have left prison in Georgia.

GACHEP is a coalition of people impacted by the prison system, faculty and staff at Georgia Universities, and other Georgians who believe all people deserve access to higher education.

While Georgia has one of the highest per capita rates of imprisonment in the world, higher education is available to only a small portion of the imprisoned population. When people leave prison, they face a host of obstacles to finding or continuing their education.

We are committed to expanding high-quality higher education in prison in the state and supporting people in their pursuit of higher education after they leave prison. If you would like to join this effort, please fill out our new member survey. You can also support our work by donating here.
