Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program

The Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program is a course that brings together campus-based college students and incarcerated students. Typically, the course is comprised of 15 "inside" (incarcerated) students and 15 "outside" (non-incarcerated) students and meets in a correctional setting. Inside-Out at UGA is a partnership between the Department of Sociology and the Clarke County Sheriff's Office - Jail Section.

Through facilitated dialogue and active learning, the program creates a powerful and transformative learning environment for all participants. All students, whether "inside" or "outside" read the same texts, complete the same assignments, and participate with equal status in the classroom.
