Baylor University has long been a significant supporter of PEP and has been instrumental in helping to develop the business curriculum that our participants encounter during the business portion of our program. PEP graduates earn a Certificate of Entrepreneurship from Baylor University’s Hankamer School of Business, and several of the Baylor faculty – and many Baylor students – frequent our in-prison events.
It should be noted that the Certificate of Entrepreneurship earned by our participants does not translate into official college credits; however, we all agree that it carries a significant amount of clout and should be prominently displayed on all our graduates’ resumes upon release. Furthermore, we hope that such a significant achievement will spur our graduates on to continue their education once they are released. The fact that a renowned university recognizes the significant achievement of our graduates is certainly something to be proud of.
