ASHE-NITE Paper Series Release: Expanding Quality Higher Education for Currently and Formerly Incarcerated People: Committing to Equity and Protecting Against Exploitation

Today, we are excited to release “Expanding Quality Higher Education for Currently and Formerly Incarcerated People: Committing to Equity and Protecting Against Exploitation” by Erin L. Castro and Eboni Zamani-Gallaher. 

This report examines literature on access to and completion of higher education for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated college students, often referred to as justice or systems involved individuals, or individuals with prior criminal histories. Five challenges in need of urgent attention among higher education leaders and personnel, policymakers, and stakeholders are highlighted.  The report concludes with implications for policy, practice, and research, and provides recommendations to support the establishment and completion of meaningful and rigorous postsecondary pathways for currently and formerly incarcerated people.
