How it Works

The Inside-Out Praxis

The Inside-Out praxis stems from the belief that our society is strengthened when higher education/learning is made widely accessible and, at the same time, when it allows participants to encounter each other as equals, often across profound social barriers. The practice of bringing incarcerated and non-incarcerated people together for engaged and informed dialogue allows for transformative learning experiences that invite participants to take leadership in addressing crime, justice, and other issues of social concern. The Inside-Out pedagogy and methodology create these collaborative, creative contexts.

“There is a power in the collective actions of good people. Inside-Out lets us find the source of that power. We do it. We grow. We change the world one class at a time.”
