More than 70 men in prison earned Certificates of Entrepreneurship from Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business this month.

The Prison Entrepreneurship Program (PEP) is prison outreach from a business perspective. Students volunteer their business knowledge to teach inmates the skills needed to run a business when released from prison.

The employment rate among PEP graduates exceeds 93% and the recidvism rate is less than 5%.
