The Cornell Prison Program is dedicated to supporting incarcerated persons’ academic ambitions and preparation for successful re-entry. We believe that Cornell faculty and student engagement as instructors at correctional facilities manifests Ezra Cornell’s commitment to founding an institution where “any person can find instruction in any study.”

Health Careers Evaluation Committee is comprised of faculty and senior staff who assist students applying to medical schools. Committee members conduct informed interviews with the students during the spring semester. Subsequent to the interview, a letter of evaluation for each student is provided to the HCEC chairman. The medical school admissions committees rely heavily on the insights provided by this evaluation. This popular program provides a meaningful way to maintain contact with students. Please contact Fran Kallfelz 3-3031, HCEC Chairman, 255-5045 if you are interested.
