Incarcerated Individuals, on average, are less educated than the general population. Many lack basic literacy, a high school diploma or equivalent, and the occupational skills necessary to secure a job. Moreover, having a felony conviction can be a significant barrier to finding employment after prison. One proven strategy for enhancing successful reentry is to provide education to inmates while incarcerated so they have the knowledge, training, and skills to support a successful return to their communities. The Programming Division provides these opportunities, providing literacy assessments and interventions, adult education, higher education, and an array of technical college education.
The Programming Division provides training opportunities through intergovernmental agreements with Davis Technical College for men and women in the Utah State Correctional Facility and Snow College for men only housed in the Central Utah Correctional Facility (CUCF is a male-only facility). Programming also contracts technical college education services for male students in the Duchesne County Jail through Uintah Basin Technical College.
