The small but fast-growing field of higher education in prison is quickly gaining momentum. And with that momentum has brought increased demand for spokespeople who can share research, results and personal stories about college in prison in a meaningful and engaging way. Instead of serving as a singular voice on topics related to higher education in prison, the Alliance is committed to ensuring that many voices come to represent our community.
This dynamic community includes practitioners, teachers, researchers, prison and college/university administrators, currently incarcerated students and alumni and others with diverse perspectives and in-depth knowledge.
Through the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison Speakers Bureau, we hope to provide an avenue for people in this emerging field to share their experiences and expertise with the public, as well as a way for the public to access speakers with a range of expertise and experiences.
Contact us to suggest a topic for the Speakers Bureau.
The Alliance for Higher Education in Prison Speakers Bureau includes a diverse roster of voices from the field.
Note: While the Alliance believes it is important to compensate people for contributing their experience and/or expertise to an event, the Alliance does not facilitate or negotiate payment for Speakers Bureau participants. Negotiating payment is the responsibility of speakers and event coordinators.Contact Us For Information

“I see myself always being involved with fighting for access to education and changing the narrative of denying people something that might seem like a privilege when it really is a right. No matter what you've done in regard to the law, you shouldn't be punished by losing something that is really a right. The right to learn. The right to better yourself. The right to feel empowered. The right to teach others.”
