  1. Thank you for posting this article. I’ve heard a lot about this work being done in my program and it is so good to hear about the process and reactions of the prisoners.

  2. Wow this is amazing! I’ve been fortunately enough to come into touch with music later in life, and I can see how it could really influence someone for the better. Glad to hear its making a difference in the lives of those who may not have much else at this point

  3. I am in the Masters for Criminal Justice and when I read this article it made me very happy. I am glad to see that there people who are not in criminal justice wanting to help prisoners. I hope to work with such people in the future and hopefully we all can make a positive difference in the prisoners lives.

  4. I am an graduate of MET’s Prison Ed Program and I cannot begin to express the difference BU’s generous gift of education has made in my life. The professors continued to show up and contribute to the betterment of so many who are in the midst of the darkest time of their lives. Thanks to BU, the dedication of the professors, and the gift of education, I am now continuing onto a graduate degree in social work at an Ivy League university. BRAVO BU and its Prison Ed Program!

  5. This is so incredible. I’m doing research on MET’s Prison Education Program for a criminal justice course and reading this gave me so much appreciation for the work that’s being done. Absolutely wonderful!
