Call for Proposals: Higher Education in Prison Training Resources

August 7, 2020

The Alliance for Higher Education in Prison invites proposals from individuals/groups to design original training resources to be made widely available to the higher education in prison community and allies across the country. The Alliance seeks projects that will help ensure high-quality, student-centered, anti-racist and humanizing experiences for students.

The development of the training materials will support the Alliance’s work in two strategic priority areas: Building Community and Supporting Quality Practice, through the production and dissemination of community-produced resources and materials. The lead author(s) should have experience and expertise with a number of the following, which should be outlined in the project proposal document (details found below): higher education pedagogy; teaching in a higher education in prison program; higher education in prison program leadership; universal design; anti-racist pedagogy and/or curriculum design; trauma-informed pedagogy and/or curriculum design; and/or conducting research on higher education and/or higher education in prison. Depending on the format and/or project topic, other experiences and/or expertise might be required and should be described in the project proposal. Additionally, all proposals must include a description of the way(s) that people who are currently or formerly incarcerated will be part of the writing, design and/or review process for each resource.

The Alliance will make all finalized materials available to the community in print and digital formats. The project author(s) will be compensated commensurate with the scope of the individual project and a budget overview and narrative must be included with the project proposal. .
