Call for Proposals: 2019 National Conference on Higher Education in Prison

May 28, 2019 Opportunities

The Call for Presentations for the 2019 National Conference on Higher Education in Prison (NCHEP) is organized around the theme of Beyond Barriers

The 2019 NCHEP has a central goal: to mobilize the energy, talent, training, knowledge, wisdom, expertise and experience of the higher education in prison community to expand access to quality higher education in prison and academic reentry support services to currently incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people. 

The theme Beyond Barriers opens doors for a wide range of presentation topics, and to a wide range of possible presenters. It is aspirational, transformational, disruptive and productive. It provides a broad lens for inclusivity within the higher education in prison community. Most importantly, it is an invitation for people who are currently incarcerated to dream of being/thinking beyond the walls, as it presents a model for people outside of prisons who work to go beyond the barriers to bring higher education into prisons. 

The deadline for submissions is May 31st, at 5:00 pm EST.
