Transcend Traditional Constraints | Transform Professional Community


Founded in 1993, the Center for the Study of Correctional Education (CSCE), at California State University, San Bernardino is the only organization of its kind working to support teachers and administrators who teach in confinement institutions and alternative settings worldwide. The Center provides teacher preparation, research, and support services for veteran and aspiring teachers of academic, vocational, and social education and for correctional education administrators who work in local, state, federal and private institutions.

We house the most complete collection of correctional education related literature anywhere in the world, as well as the only complete collection of The Journal of Correctional Education. The Center library also supports our unique masters degree program in correctional education. Through collaboration with educators across the US and several foreign countries, the Center promotes:

  • The Council of Europe's Recommendations on Education in Prison and new rules for juvenile offenders
  • The adoption of administrative configurations that empower educators to make educational decisions
  • Professional development for correctional educators
  • Increased educational opportunities for inmates
