Abstract

Iowa’s community colleges partner with the Iowa Department of Corrections to provide inmates with education, training and skills to help them successfully reenter our communities and build productive lives. Supporting second chances and successful reentry prepares individuals for life and employment, which reduces recidivism. Iowa’s community colleges support Governor Reynolds’ 2020 vision to increase high school equivalency completion and create educational pathways for reentering individuals. This work is in line with the state’s Future Ready Iowa goal for 70 percent of Iowans in the workforce to have education or training beyond high school by the year 2025.
