“Imagining Possibilities”: In Class with NYU’s Prison Education Program

Developed by faculty, staff, and students, along with formerly incarcerated people, NYU’s Prison Education Program works to ensure access to higher education for people in prisons and jails. The program currently offers courses leading to an Associate of Arts degree in liberal studies (with transferable credits) at Wallkill Correctional Facility in Ulster county, NY, and provides education support services for students upon their release. In this video, PEP instructor Laurie Woodard and students Jose and Vincent reflect on what they’ve learned.
