The Prison Education Project (PEP) is an organization that relies on university students and faculty volunteers to help in the program’s restorative justice and prison reform efforts. PEP’s goal is to create a “Prison-to-School Pipeline” by educating and empowering incarcerated individuals by providing weekend classes in California prisons.
PEP at UCI is a club that strives to give students the opportunity to be involved in restorative justice efforts at the local level. Club members collaborate on creating lessons on career development and college readiness skills then visit the facilities to facilitate the lessons and workshops.
We are currently accepting team member applications from now through January 12th

Next Generation Undergraduate Student Success Measurement Project
This project is a longitudinal study that aims to improve our understanding of the value of undergraduate educational experiences and promote evidence-based models of undergraduate student success. We are tracking a sample of UCI students over two years and gaining information about everything from transcripts, online classroom behavior, living situations, and student moods. The purpose of the study is to capture student experiences inside and outside the classroom and paint a complete portrait of the student experience at UCI. For more information, please visit: http://education.uci.edu/next-gen-ug-success-project.html
Tasks: Students will spend their time coding data, reading academic papers in the field, and other research tasks. Students will have the opportunity to receive 4 units per quarter of Directed Research (Education 198) credit in exchange for about 10 hours of work per week. There will be opportunities to learn about the research process, present and write about your research, and apply for UROP fellowships and projects.
Preferred Majors of Applicants: Psychology; Sociology; Education Sciences; Social Sciences
Eligibility Prerequisites & Requirements: Highly motivated students, at least sophomore standing, 3.0 GPA, interest in education research, commitment to be involved in the project for at least 10 hours per week for a minimum of two quarters. Students must have strong English language skills.
