The Prison Studies Project began compiling a list of higher education in prison programs throughout the United States in 2008. In collaboration with a team of dedicated students, we created the first nationwide directory of higher education programs in US prisons. For over a decade, 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 have partnered with the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison to transfer the National Directory and thus expand its reach.
