Lee College was one of the first institutions of higher learning to offer college credit classes to offenders as contracted by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
The success of the Lee College Huntsville Center can be marked by the number of students who graduate with degrees and receive leading industry certifications, while serving a criminal conviction in TDCJ and leading to the reduction of recidivism rates.
Like many community college programs, the Huntsville Center plays an essential role in the professional development and specialized training of an ever-increasing, diverse, and dynamic workforce today.
