Fifteen Michigan inmates have received associate’s degrees from Calvin College. The Associated Press reports, the prisoners represent the first in the Calvin Prison Initiative program to earn a degree. The program, which launched in 2016, provides up to 20 inmates annually with the opportunity to pursue a bachelor’s degree in ministry leadership. The program currently enrolls 55 students. Inmates from any of the men’s prisons in the Michigan Department of Corrections can apply.
