Abstract:

Project NewGate evolved from a new concept of college-level education introduced in the Oregon State Prison in 1967. The concept grew from the national Upward Bound Program, an effort to prepare disadvantaged youth for college entrance, sponsored by the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO). Federal funding expanded the program in Oregon correctional institutions and provided for replication in additional States. The experimental effort under OEO was called 'Project NewGate.' The program has three phases: (1) the in-prison phase, which provides full-time, accredited college-level course work, counseling, and therapy; (2) the transitional phase, which permits the inmate to attend classes in the community during the day while returning to supervised living at night; and (3) the release phase, which provides counseling, therapy, and financial support for the released student until his educational program is terminated. In the interests of replicating Project NewGate in other States, the NewGate Resource Center was established in 1971. The objectives of the Center are to provide a clearinghouse of information on post-secondary education for offenders, disseminate information on such programs, and provide technical assistance for those interested in establishing post-secondary programs of education. The activities of the Center from October, 1971 through January, 1974, are described. The role of the NewGate change-agent and his relationship to the prison system in the development of the program are discussed. Financial and participation data are appended.
