Weekly newspaper the Madison Times featured the University of Wisconsin’s Odyssey Project in a recent article celebrating the program’s 12th graduation.

The Odyssey Project is a community-university partnership that offers a free, six-credit humanities program to adults in South Madison. These adults live near the poverty level and have encountered barriers to education including homelessness, teen parenthood, incarceration, disability, and domestic abuse.

The piece profiles several students who overcame difficult economic and personal struggles in their lives on the path to starting college.
