ACCJC Site Visit: Join the Alumni and Community Forums!

By Mount Tamalpais College | October 16, 2019

As many of you know, the Prison University Project is applying to become an accredited independent college with the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC). As part of this process, we will host a peer review team, comprising staff and instructors from other colleges, at our offices and inside San Quentin during the week of October 21. During the visit, we have also scheduled some events for the broader college community in order to give the ACCJC team an opportunity to hear from our many stakeholders.

It's been a rough few weeks in terms of media layoffs so I want to flag a job I'm helping hire for: @prisonjourn, which trains incarcerated people as journalists and helps them get published, is hiring a managing editor to run all of its editorial strategy https://prisonjournalismproject.org/job-posting-managing-editor/

Teaching @StanfordLaw students alongside incarcerated students at @MtTamCollege in #SanQuentin was a highlight of the year—with hopefully more to come!

A fascinating glimpse at the history of higher education at San Quentin! While many hurdles still exist when running a college with a prison as its campus, at least we no longer have to "copy, stencil, and mimeograph" course materials to bring them inside.
