In 2008, the Prison Studies Project began compiling a list of higher education in prison programs throughout the United States. For ten years, the National Directory of Higher Education Programs in Prison has been a central focus of the Prison Studies Project and an important resource for the higher education in prison community. We are excited to be partnering with the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison to transfer the National Directory to its website and to expand its reach. During this transition period, the current directory and program listings will remain on the Prison Studies Project website but the Directory will no longer be updated.
If you are part of a new program or an existing program and would like to update your information, please contact the Research Collaborative on Higher Education in Prison at the University of Utah: researchcollaborativeHEP@utah.edu, as they will be partnering with the Alliance to collect this information for the National Directory.
Questions about the Prison Studies Project and/or the history of the National Directory of Higher Education in Prison Programs can be sent via the “Contact” page, here, on our website. Thank you for your patience and support.
