Mansfield in Action

Bringing together the strengths of the university and community in order to understand and address gaps in the system that perpetuate the prison pipeline. We engage in specific, long term, collaborative projects with our community partners we are both disrupting the pipeline and giving youth reason to hope while preparing them for productive adulthood. Through coursework, scholarships, fellowships and mentoring, we incorporate Roosevelt University students into the projects so that they gain experience, skills and insights needed to be leaders and agents of social change.

Active projects are listed to the left.
