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 on December 15, 2020.
The Alliance is excited to announce a new partnership with Richard Milner, Cornelius Vanderbilt Chair of Education and Founding Director of the Initiative for Race Research and Justice at Vanderbilt University and the Tennessee Higher Education in Prison Initiative to produce an Opportunity-Centered, Anti-Racist Teaching Guide specific to in-prison teaching. The guide will be organized around a series of interrelated competencies (e.g., mentoring, academic and social support, tutoring, learning theory and trauma-informed pedagogy and building responsive and relevant student learning assessment). Once produced, the guide will be made widely available for the higher education in prison community.
