  • This event has passed.

“Stateville Calling” is a documentary about current efforts to create a fair and humane parole system in Illinois. This event will entail a screening of the film followed by a panel discussion featuring North Park University students, faculty, and staff who are involved in the MA program at Stateville Correctional Center.

The theme for Catalyst on Campus events this year is “home.” Home signifies familiarity, a sense of rootedness, and a call to connectedness. In designating home as our theme, we hope to inspire conversation around multifaceted questions, such as, “How do our neighborhoods foster a sense of home?” “Whom do we choose to welcome into our home?” and “What kind of home do you envision North Park University to be?” The criminal justice system shapes the landscape of our home city, and to understand its impact, we must listen to fellow community members who have experienced Stateville Correctional Center firsthand.
