This article summarizes the results of a study conducted to investigate factors influencing the organizational design, establishment, administration, and governance of correctional education for females. The research involved interviews with correctional and community college administrators and practitioners representing North Carolina female offender correctional education programs. The data revealed six categories of particular interest. These categories included: (a) correctional education history, background, and establishment, (b) collaboration between leadership, (c) organizational structure, culture, and governance, (d) research and literature, (e) resources and operations, and (f) expectations, outcomes, assessment, and the future of correctional education for females. Implications are drawn for educational practice and further research.
