Training for Inside-Outside Initiative
The Inside-Outside educational exchange program is a training institute that teaches University professors how to develop a course that they run inside a prison facility, with regularly matriculating University students taking a class alongside incarcerated persons.
The project lead has been accepted into this training program and will be attending the training at Temple University. My purpose is to offer a Great Books curriculum in the space of the prison with freshman and incarcerated persons studying side by side. The intention is to offer this class as a freshman seminar, in order to bring young students into an experiential awareness of issues of justice, education, dialogue, and social responsibility.
