Amherst College Inside Out Program

In 2005 Sheriff Garvey and Anthony Marx, President of Amherst College, worked together to begin offering Amherst College classes in the House of Correction. Each semester a 4 credit class is offered with 12 student participants from Amherst College (outside) and 12 participants from the House of Correction (inside).

This program offers a unique opportunity for offenders to engage in an educational experience that may otherwise be unavailable to them.
