IL-CHEP is a coalition of programs and educators dedicated to providing quality higher education opportunities for people who are incarcerated in Illinois. We strive to support our students as they build meaningful lives and prepare for a successful future in civic life.

Equally important, we encourage public dialogue and action to reduce our state’s and country’s reliance on incarceration.

Join us at our next meeting in Chicago on Friday August 23, 2019 from 10:30 – 2pm. It will be hosted by DePaul University in Room 207 of the Richardson Library, located on the southwest corner of Fullerton Avenue and Kenmore Street, 2 blocks west of the CTA Red Line-Fullerton stop.  There should also be some free parking on Kenmore, and plenty of metered parking on Fullerton.  Please RSVP here.
