The Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program facilitates dialogue and education across profound social differences. Inside-Out courses bring traditional college students and incarcerated students together in jails and prisons for semester-long learning. These courses ignite enthusiasm for learning, help students find their voice, and challenge students to consider what good citizenship requires.

Since it began in 1997, Inside-Out has grown into an international network of more than 900 trained instructors from across the U.S. and several countries. Correctional and higher education institutions have partnered to create opportunities for more than 35,000 "inside" and "outside" students to move beyond the walls that separate them. Inside-Out generates social change through transformative education.

We are more than a program. We are changing the world.
