“Beyond Pell: Addressing Persistent Funding Challenges in Higher Education in Prison Toward Racial and Economic Justice” is the latest report from the Higher Education in Prison Landscape Project Team. The report outlines the potential impacts of Pell restoration on the field of higher education in prison and the analysis focuses on persistent funding challenges that the Pell grant alone cannot address.
The Landscape of Higher Education in Prison report provides a descriptive overview of the field of higher education in prison during the 2019-2020 academic year.
The Understanding the Landscape of Higher Education Prison Survey (Landscape Survey) was designed as a confidential follow-up to the 2020 Annual Survey of Higher Education in Prison Programs, distributed by the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison. The Landscape Survey contained 93 questions designed to collect both descriptive and open-ended responses from participants about their college-in-prison programs during the 2018/2019 academic year. Included within this survey were specific questions about student, staff and volunteer demographics, program funding, student enrollment and admissions, program goals, and program evaluation.
The Alliance for Higher Education in Prison maintains the most comprehensive resource in the United States for people seeking information about national college in prison programs. The National Directory was launched in 2020.
