“It’s hard to explain what this class has meant to me, and even harder to try to write it down. It’s been the most incredible class filled with educational and personal growth. I know I’ll never have another experience like it.”
-Hannah, Outside Student
This "experiential learning" opportunity follows the pedagogy of the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program, an international educational model that "increases opportunities for men and women, inside and outside of prison, to have transformative learning experiences that emphasize collaboration and dialogue, inviting participants to take leadership in addressing crime, justice, and other issues of social concern."
Inside-Out classes have been taught at over 160 colleges and universities nationwide and in several other countries since 1997. More than 22,000 students have taken Inside-Out courses hosted by over 100 correctional institutions, including county jails, state prisons, federal prisons, juvenile facilities, and community correctional facilities at all security levels.
