“Why Universities Should Be in Prisons”
A James E. McLeod Memorial Lecture featuring
Rebecca Ginsburg is director of the Education Justice Project (EJP), a college-in-prison program based at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. EJP offers for-credit courses and other educational activities to men incarcerated in a medium-security state prison. In this lecture she’ll describe EJP, share stories of its students, and make a case for other institutions of higher education working within prisons. Her position is that such engagement not only serves incarcerated individuals and the broader society, but also the university, its students, and faculty.
