Former PSC trainee Jay Borchert parlays past incarceration and doctoral degree into pursuing better treatment of inmates

a PSC In The News reference, 2016

"Graduation After Incarceration: a Rackham Student Earns His Ph.D." - Rackham News. 11/30/2016.

At just 10 years out of prison, Jay Borchert is on his way to a tenure-track faculty position. His teaching, research, and activism interests? The treatment of inmates and former inmates. Population Studies Center Director Jeff Morenoff, who along with Dave Harding served as Jay's mentor during his traineeship at the Center, says Jay's life experiences "give him a perspective that few academics have and it also fuels him with a passion for his work that few others can match."
