APPLY NOW! We are currently accepting applications for CJ 360: Inside Out Prison Exchange Program – and will continue to do so until February 27. The transformative experience takes places inside a Connecticut correctional facility, and satisfies 3 credits in the social sciences.
The “Inside-Out” Prison Exchange program is part of a national movement giving undergraduate students (outside students) and incarcerated men (inside students) an opportunity to learn together. This course being offered to outside students at Quinnipiac and male inside students at Garner Correctional Institution and at Carl Robinson Institution in Connecticut asks students to examine the impact of status upon American life by considering issues of personal and collective voice in communities, variation in access to conventional success opportunities, and the effect of status upon ability to effectively engage in local and national communities. It is a chance for all students to gain deeper understanding of community membership from multiple perspectives, and how it is impacted by social status. Through application of theoretical perspectives and consideration of practical experience students are exposed to a diversity of material that allows them to more fully examine and understand the complex impact of social status upon American life.
Interested students should email Professor Steve McGuinn and request an application. Applications are due February 27th!
