The mission of the Education Justice Project is to build a model college-in-prison program that demonstrates the positive impacts of higher education upon incarcerated people, their families, the communities from which they come, the host institution, and society as a whole.
Important! EJP will no longer host the 2014 national conference on higher education in prison, Strategies for Action, due to the growing international boycott of the Urbana-Chapaign campus.
Instead, we will host a symposium from October 9 – 12, 2014. If you registered for the conference, please consider attending the symposium. It will be smaller, as some potential attendees plan to observe the boycott. However, we expect that at least 60 people will be present to share and learn from one another about teaching in prison.
Part of the symposium will take place at Danville Correctional Center.
