Hi everyone!

Hi everyone,

I am a PhD student in Computer Science at UC San Diego, and my research focus is improving computer science higher education in prisons. I recently published a research report at a computing education research conference (ACM SIGCSE), which I wanted to share here to get feedback from the HEP community and connect with others doing similar work. 

Here is the abstract:

I am looking for participants to interview for my Master's Thesis project. 

Are you a formerly incarcerated person who identifies as a woman or femme? I would love to speak with you about your experience in prison/jail! If you know someone who may be interested, please share the flyer below with them. 

Each participant will receive a $50 digital gift card. 

Feel free to message with any questions or email me at mniness@udel.edu. Thank you for your help!

Check out two new books published this year from the field:

 

So proud of my Justice Think Tank colleagues Linda Small and Chandler Dugal for their op-ed piece that was published in The Bangor Daily News! Their cowritten article centers on the prong of our Criminal Code group's work that researched record sealing and expungement for formerly incarcerated people and proposed an implementation strategy for the State of Maine!

With a submission deadline of May 1, 2024, The Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities is soliciting manuscripts for their journal on the role of higher education in prison and returning citizens on campuses and communities. The purpose of this issue's theme is to gain insight into how higher education institutions address prison education, transition, and reentry for incarcerated students.

The topic suggestions for content are fairly broad, but all must include evidence-based theories or practice with supportive data.

This report from the State University of New York (SUNY) Higher Education for the Justice-Involved (HEJI) program links administrative data collected by SUNY and the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) between 2010 and 2020 to reveal student engagement and outcomes in SUNY-involved college-in-prison programs.
