Consortium for the Liberal Arts in Prison


Each college in the Consortium has established satellite campuses inside its state's prison system. The school works closely with public allies in state government and networks of private supporters, but maintains the integrity and independence of the liberal arts college. At times our goals overlap with the best of the criminal justice system, but they originate elsewhere - in the unique relationship between a first-rate academic institution and its students. The result is an ambitious experiment in adult education. Launched in 2009 and currently active at multiple sites in four different states, the Consortium is working to connect as many as ten new programs across the country.
