Wisconsin De-carceration Project moves forward with online platform

A group of five students in the University Scholars Honors Program at MSOE presented their ambitious project at ending mass incarceration in front of a group of community partners on May 2nd at the school’s Grohmann Museum.

The “Wisconsin Decarceration Project” began in the Fall of 2018 as a targeted effort by Julilly Kohler and Gretchen Schuldt of the Milwaukee Turners’ Confronting Mass Incarceration (CMI) coalition, aimed at partnering with community partners and MSOE students in developing a real-world tool for connecting organizations, data and services with the unified goal of ending our ongoing incarceration problem.

The students, led by their professor Dr. Michael Carriere, presented their online platform concept which would include numerous portals connecting users to appropriate resources depending on their needs.
