Erin Castro (University of Utah) and Mary Gould (Alliance for Higher Education in Prison) will contextualize why data collection at the national level is paramount to advancing equity and inclusion in higher education in prison and will provide an overview of the research being conducted.
Megan Callaghan and James Kim from the BPI will present the experience and programs of the Bard Prison Initiative and their evolution over the last 20 years.
The panelists will also discuss how these research programs and practical initiatives can mobilize collective expertise, resources and networks in ways that foster pathways and pipelines to college for historically excluded students.
