BEDFORD HILLS COLLEGE PROGRAM ENDOWMENT
Support of the Bedford Hills College Program helps us educate incarcerated women at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, New York State’s only maximum-security prison for women. BHCP offers non-credit college-prep courses in writing and math, as well as credit-bearing courses leading to an Associate of Arts degree in Social Science or a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology.
As part of a consortium of local colleges, MMC has served as the program’s degree-granting institution since 1997, serving over 800 women in that time and conferring more than 235 degrees.
BCHP is an important program, and we want to ensure its continued success. With that in mind, in 2010, the College established an endowment fund that would provide the majority of the program’s annual operating expenses in perpetuity.
