Coe College Prison Learning Initiative hosting a higher education in prison roundtable

The Prison Learning Initiative will host a roundtable discussion regarding college in prison on Tuesday, February 27 from 7:00-8:00 PM in the Coe College Center for Health & Society (CHS) lobby. It is free and open to the public.

Five Iowans who took college courses while incarcerated will share their experiences pursuing higher education in and after prison. They will describe their educational journeys in this moderated panel discussion. 

This event is hosted by Coe's Prison Learning Initiative which offers a range of hands-on experiences for campus and community members to learn about the impacts of incarceration, reentry and the carceral system. 

Written by Professor of English and Director of the Prison Learning Initiative, Gina Hausknecht.
