Learn More About the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison
The Alliance for Higher Education in Prison is a project of Community Partners.
Our mission is to support the expansion of quality higher education in prison, empower students in prison and after release, and shape public discussion about education and incarceration.
We envision a world in which all people, including those in prison, have access to quality higher education, creating a more just and equitable world.
Theory of Change
Access to meaningful, sustained, quality higher education can transform the lives of individuals in prison, their families, the communities to which they return, and society as a whole.
The Alliance for Higher Education in Prison recognizes the depth and complexity of stakeholders involved with and impacted by higher education (and the lack of higher education) in prison. We are an inclusive organization, and welcome all stakeholders to join us in advancing our mission.
We maintain a strategic focus in the following five areas:
1. Resource and Information Sharing
2. Programmatic Support
3. Research and Data Collection
4. Public Awareness
5. Advocacy and Policy Reform
The Alliance for Higher Education in prison would like to thank Great Lakes Higher Education Corporation & Affiliates, Laughing Gull Foundation, Lumina Foundation, The Teagle Foundation and Yerba Buena Fund for their generous support of the 2017 National Conference for Higher Education in Prison.
