RAYMOND, Miss. — Hinds Community College is among three Mississippi two-year colleges that are part of a $375,000 grant supporting humanities courses being taught in prisons for the next two years.
Hinds, Northeast Mississippi Community College and Mississippi Delta Community College are part of the project through the Mississippi Humanities Council, which received the grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support humanities education in Mississippi prisons.
Hinds Community College has been offering for-credit courses at the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Pearl since 2018, said Dr. Keri Cole, vice president of instruction.
