Community Engagement Activity
Inside Out Prison Exchange program is extraordinary because it allows students to dive deep into the complex issues regarding the Prison Industrial Complex. Students visit the jail weekly to engage in the issues surrounding the Prison Industrial complex. Students visit either the Cook County Jail or Statesville Prison. Students engage in important reading with the inmates to encourage inmates to pursue in education. Sometimes the Inside Out program lead to long term relationships between students and inmates families. The inmates who participate in the program earn course credit. Students take away new information about what could be done to prevent more people to become part of the Prison Industrial Complex.
