COVID-19

Advocating for Our Students and Incarcerated People During COVID-19

Like all academic institutions, our concern for our students extends far beyond the classroom. COVID-19 has created a profound crisis for our community on multiple levels. All non-essential programs including college classes have been suspended. Medically the prison population is extremely vulnerable, and the prison environment makes containment extremely difficult. The updates below detail how we are working to protect the health and safety of our students, and the larger prison community, during this unprecedented time. While we are not currently running programs, we still encourage interested prospective faculty to submit materials to be in our faculty pool. You will be placed on our mailing list and contacted when programming resumes.
