虚拟内外程序

The Virtual Inside/Out program is designed to break down the barriers that prevent incarcerated individuals from accessing higher education. In partnership with the Colorado Department of Corrections (CDOC), 十大正规网投平台’s Office of the Vice Provost for Strategic Programs is proud to offer incarcerated students the chance to attend classes alongside their peers who are not incarcerated, providing both groups with a unique opportunity for growth and connection. 我们相信所有的人, 不管他们的过去, have the capacity to learn and grow, and we are committed to supporting them on their journey toward positive change.


它是如何工作的

Inside students from three rural correctional facilities across Colorado gather in a classroom within the prison, while outside students meet in an on-campus classroom with the professor, and the two groups learn together via synchronous video link. While in the yearlong program, inside students take six liberal arts courses in consecutive, 加速, 七周条款, earning up to 18 credits that can be applied to the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts degree program at Regis, or transferred to any post-secondary institution, after the students’ release from prison.

People who are incarcerated in a CDOC facility must apply through their facility for admission. Regis cannot consider applications sent directly to the university. 问题? 联系 艾琳Trumble, Director of Prison Education, at trumb453@search-watch.com.

用他们自己的话说

“I found community with like-minded individuals and support from people who understood that I could be more than a prisoner ... At the risk of sounding cliché I will say: Regis saved me, and it made me who 我是 today.”

"I think I still have a huge responsibility to the community, to the people I have harmed specifically, to conduct myself in here in a way that contributes to the community in a positive way."

"I feel that education gives the adult offenders an opportunity to reflect on themselves and to gain accountability and the reward of achievement in the hard work and dedication."

“I can honestly say that it has been one of the most rewarding teaching experiences of my academic career. While it is certainly an opportunity for students to further their education, often creating accessibility to a wider array of possible future trajectories, the Virtual Inside/Out program is transformative to students and faculty alike. It is transformative because of the insights we gain about what it means to be human and the profound understanding that we collaboratively develop about the privileges of intellectual discourse, 深反射, 个人自由, regardless of our lot in life. ”
