NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - As one of two programs that exist in the country, The Mountainview Program is holding an event to gain awareness and support from the Rutgers Community, including administration staff, faculty and students. The event is taking place on Wednesday October 19th at 8PM on the Cook Campus at the Cook Campus Center Multipurpose room at Rutgers University in New Brunswick.

The Mountainview Program is a special admissions program that focuses on the application of higher education in for the formerly incarcerated. A student in this program is usually still under the umbrella of the Department of Corrections and gains special permission to attend the University until release, which is the most crucial and important step of their lives.

We are encouraging students to share their knowledge and educate incarcerated individuals to give them an opportunity that they would not have known of without the students help.
