From Here: The Campaign for Bowdoin

Being need-blind is critical. It doesn't always go far enough.

Our $35 million commitment to comprehensive aid will allow the College to bridge the gap, and help provide all of our students with a Bowdoin experience, and not just a Bowdoin education.

Dr. Robert Henke is a professor at Washington University in St. Louis and the director of Washington University Prison Education Project (PEP). The PEP teaches elite college courses in prison and is the only program of its kind that is principally funded by the university.
