Women prisoners at Albion Correctional Facility will be able to study for a college degree beginning this summer, thanks to a $200,000 grant from the Sunshine Lady Foundation.
The grant underwrites classes that will be taught by five faculty members from Medaille College in Buffalo and one from Nazareth College in Pittsford. Sunshine Lady was founded by philanthropist Doris Buffett, sister of billionaire investor Warren Buffett.
The initial session will offer courses in English, psychology, history and biology leading to a liberal studies associate’s degree. Classes will continue through the spring 2015 semester.
