Join us for the Prison University Project’s First Annual Benefit: Gather & Give

By Mount Tamalpais College | August 28, 2018

Purchase tickets here!

The Prison University Project will host an evening celebration Saturday, September 22, at the Delancey Street Restaurant in San Francisco, where we aim to spread awareness of our work and raise funds to increase our impact. Joined by board members, staff, volunteers, and former students, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the Prison University Project and hear about the program from recent graduates.

We will also be honoring two very important people from our community — Nigel Poor, the co-producer and co-host of Ear Hustle and volunteer instructor with the Prison University Project, and Jane E. Kahn, a civil rights and civil liberties attorney and founding board member.

Dinner and two drink tickets will be included.

Featuring spoken word performances by Cece Jordan and Tongo Eisen-Martin

Please note that the Prison University Project became Mount Tamalpais College in September 2020.


As part of our journey to become independently accredited, we have changed our name to Mount Tamalpais College—a reference to the mountain in Marin County that dominates the view from San Quentin.

We've reached an important milestone as we transition to an independent college: we are officially changing our name to Mount Tamalpais College later this month. We are eager to share our new website, logo, college seal, and motto. Stay tuned!
