On Nov. 13, 2017, an unprecedented event took place behind the walls of California Correctional Institution (CCI). Six California State University Bakersfield (CSUB) students from the Philosophy Department arrived to compete in a College Ethics Bowl against the CCI inmate debate team. The CCI team won by 10 points in their first-ever debate.
On Aug. 3, California Correctional Institution (CCI) Mental Health Department sponsored an unprecedented event once again. Last year, this group won an ethics bowl against California State University Bakersfield. This year they focused their talent and energy on prison reform.
