The Alliance Prospectus is a result of a yearlong stakeholder engagement process (2016) that involved more than 300 people working in and/or engaging with the emerging field of higher education in prison. Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison and the Saint Louis University Prison Education Program spearheaded the process that included research and interviews with other national organizations, stakeholder feedback collected via surveys (online and paper) and focus groups and strategic planning workshops. The Prospectus is a summary of that work, and the purpose, vision and mission that eventually formed the foundation of the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison.
