Grant received: Community Education Project

Stetson Today posted a story about the higher education in prison program I co-direct, along with three colleagues in the College of Arts and Sciences. We recently received a $210,000 grant from the Laughing Gull Foundation, which supports similar programs, especially in the South, environmental justice, and LGBTQI resource centers.

We are so proud that we are able to improve the work we do at Tomoka Correctional Institution (Daytona Beach, FL), including supporting the research and studies of our students incarcerated there. The grant will be disbursed across three years, and will allow us to offer for-credit, non-degree bearing coursework each year. We will also be able to build a computer lab for our students. Their research and studies are currently done by hand.

These and other efforts will greatly support and improve our program. Thank you to LGF for sharing our vision!
