The project is a collaboration between the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison, the Research Collaborative on Higher Education in Prison at the University of Utah, and the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley.
Beginning in September 2022, the Cohort Program will bring together twelve higher education in prison programs to serve as co-learners in an on-going national project aimed at understanding the broad landscape of higher education in prison. With the support of an external facilitator, the cohort members will work collaboratively with one another for a full year to develop a co-learning environment, to share resources and information that will support their programs, and to work with the project team to share real-time feedback on the Landscape Project.
In 2019, the Alliance launched the Higher Education in Prison Cohort Program to strengthen the network of higher education in prison programs and promote meaningful co-learning and collaboration. We do this by supporting program leaders and staff who are working to create, sustain and grow higher education in prison programs.
Each cohort represents the diversity of the higher education in prison stakeholder community, including credit and non-credit bearing programs, degree and non-degree granting programs, various institutional types, geographic locations, and types of facilities; size of program; diversity of staff, leadership, and program participants; and existing program infrastructure. By bringing these programs together, we hope to foster a supportive environment where practitioners can collaborate and engage in collective problem solving. The outcomes of the cohort will help inform future projects of the Alliance.
Generous support for the Higher Education in Prison Cohort Program is provided by Ascendium Education Group and the Sunshine Lady Foundation.
