Despite the challenges of being incarcerated, many of our brothers and sisters behind bars are using  their time to learn and grow in their faith thanks to an online prison tablet education program, which is  now in 100+ prisons across the nation thanks to a partnership between CDU and the Edovo Corporation.  Enrollments in free digital courses created by CDU and offered on tablets provided by the Edovo  Corporation grew 110% in 2020 to 345,000 free lessons taken.

CDU offers 30 courses in English, seven in Spanish, and three certificates programs to the incarcerated through the Edovo tablets. New courses to keep incarcerated students engaged and growing in faith will  continue to be developed. Since many prisons do not have Catholic chaplains, CDU is developing online  certificate programs to form faithful leaders behind prison walls to support this ever-growing, isolated  population.
