Teaching prisoners at the Catholic University of Lublin

For the first time, the Rehabilitation through Science project was implemented by the Catholic University of Lublin in the 2013/2014 academic year. At that time, a group of 36 people from all over Poland, imprisoned in the remand center in Lublin, began their studies in the field of social work. The candidates were offered an innovative specialty – street work.

Currently, 26 inmates are studying at the Catholic University of Lublin. Six third-year students prepare diploma theses.
