Dr. Lynne Ruvalcaba with the CDCR Office of Correctional Education is truly passionate about education. In the first episode of season 2 of the CDCR Unlocked Podcast, she shares how her team, in collaboration with Enterprise Information Services, is transforming what correctional education looks like.

CDCR is rolling out about 30,000 secure laptops to incarcerated students attending face-to-face college programs. This initiative increases access to education for incarcerated students. It also teaches them how to use new or unfamiliar technology. These skills help individuals find jobs, stay connected with loved ones, and continue learning. Learn more about the initiative.

CDCR Unlocked focuses on topics such as rehabilitation and reentry, peace officer recruitment, employee wellness and criminal justice. It will also feature interviews with and profiles of CDCR executives, administrators, staff, incarcerated people, volunteers and community partners.
