Curricular Support

In addition to our educational programs for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated students, we are working to develop strong curricular support for the effective engagement of Columbia faculty and students in prison and jail education. The Justice in Education Initiative provides Columbia students and faculty with an interdisciplinary framework for understanding criminal justice issues by supporting the development of new course offerings within the undergraduate curriculum that engage contemporary issues of justice.
