Recording: Educational Justice for the Formerly Incarcerated, Mar 8, 2022

Community colleges and universities play a role in social mobility. Those often overlooked are individuals impacted by the criminal justice system. Partnerships, prison education programs, and changes to enrollment policies for those with prior criminal convictions can provide fresh starts, address inequities, and expand access. Learn about a community college transfer program that helped a formerly incarcerated person gain a degree from the largest private research university in the US.
