Prison-to-College Pipeline Seminar at Unisa

Last week Inside-out participated in the Research & Innovation Week at Unisa, by collaborating with Dr Baz Dreisinger, the Founding Academic Director of the Prison-to-College Pipeline at the City University of New York, to host a seminar regarding education in the correctional environment. The title of the seminar was “Can a Prison-to-College Pipeline be built in South Africa? Reflections on Higher Education, Incarceration, Re-entry and Access to Opportunity.”
