The Landscape of Higher Education in Prison

2018-2019

Data for the 2018-2019 Landscape of Higher Education in Prison report are drawn from two sources: responses to the 2020 Annual Survey of Higher Education in Prison Programs (n = 131) and program information retrieved from a dataset compiled by the Research Collaborative on Higher Education in Prison (Research Collaborative) for known programs that did not complete the Annual Survey (n = 169). The Annual Survey of Higher Education in Prison was launched in March 2020. The survey consisted of 77 questions, gathering descriptive program information for the 2018-2019 academic year (July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019).
