The Institute for Prison Teaching and Outreach allows students at The College of New Jersey to become involved in a number of aspects of our programming. We encourage active involvement as a means to both enhance the program itself and to provide a powerful and rare learning experience for the students. If you are interested in getting involved, please email email@example.com for more information.

College in Prison
College credit-bearing courses are taught inside the prison by TCNJ faculty. Approximately half of the students in these classes are from TCNJ; the rest of the class is made up of incarcerated students. While the courses highlight a wide array of disciplines, each draws upon the unique perspectives that can be offered by different demographics represented in the student body.
If you are interested in teaching a course or being a teaching assistant, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your course ideas and your teaching background.
Student Fellowship Program
Each semester, students are invited to apply to serve as Student Fellows, assisting in a variety of capacities to help support the Institute’s mission and programming. Click here for more information on the program.
