1 Pathways from Prison to Postsecondary Education Pathways from Prison to Postsecondary Education is a five-year national demonstration effort that provides selected states with at least $1 million in incentive funding, along with technical assistance, to create an education and reentry continuum that begins in prison and continues in the community after release until students achieve a degree or professional certification. Goals of the initiative > Increase postsecondary education attainment among the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated population; > Increase employability and earnings among formerly incarcerated people as a means of disrupting the cycle of inter-generational poverty; > Reduce recidivism and improve the quality of life in neighborhoods disproportionately affected by crime and incarceration; and > Demonstrate that there are cost-effective methods for providing access to postsecondary education and support services for currently and formerly incarcerated individuals. States selected to participate > New Jersey: 11 prisons, 8 colleges and universities > North Carolina: 8 prisons, 6 community colleges > Michigan: 2 prisons, 3 community colleges Page 1

2 Key features > Funded by five leading foundations the Ford Foundation, the Sunshine Lady Foundation, the Open Society Foundations, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. > In-prison and post-release postsecondary education provided by accredited local colleges. > Vocational, developmental, GED, and college readiness courses and academic support services. > A targeted approach for individuals who are within two years of release through two years postrelease. > A primary focus on the attainment of a postsecondary education degree or credential. > Alignment of courses, degrees, and certification programs with local labor market trends. > Expanded use of technology solutions for in-prison academic services. > Transfer of college credits from prison to colleges in the community. > Partnerships with local employers. > Parole supervision practices that support pursuit of postsecondary educational opportunities. > Mentoring, tutoring, and reentry support services. > Comprehensive and coordinated in-prison and community-based case planning. > Technical assistance, sub-grant funding to states, and support for a learning community across sites provided by Vera, the national intermediary. > Third-party evaluation provided by the RAND Corporation with a focus on implementation (replicability and scale), outcomes (attainment of GEDs, postsecondary degrees, employment), and impact (recidivism). > A cost-benefit analysis conducted by Vera s Cost-Benefit Analysis Unit. > A national project advisory board.

3 Highlights of New Jersey s Pathways from Prison Model Higher Education Institutions (8): Drew, Princeton, and Rutgers Universities (New Brunswick and Newark campuses); The College of New Jersey; Mercer County, Essex County, and Raritan Valley Community Colleges. These institutions form the New Jersey Scholarship and Transformative Education in Prisons Consortium (NJ- STEP) Prisons (5 growing to 11): Currently in five facilities, adding two in each subsequent year Pilot Communities: Essex County (Newark),Camden County (Camden), Mercer County (Trenton), Middlesex County (New Brunswick), Passaic County (Patterson), and Cumberland County (Bridgeton) > A statewide vision that every person in prison who qualifies for college will have the opportunity to earn college credits toward a degree while incarcerated and will obtain support for post-release continuation, with every prison connected to a community college and four-year college or university. > In-prison courses to match what students will need to matriculate in college degree programs. > Credits transferable throughout the prison system and consortium colleges. > NJ Transfer agreements between all two-year community colleges that every course taken at one is transferable to any other in the state and all two-year courses are transferable to four-year public colleges and universities. > Higher education institutions as primary employers of students (e.g. work-study, student employees in contracted services). > Coordinators at each facility. > Campus-based reentry counselors to assist with the college enrollment process and other services. > Associate of Arts and BA degree (10-25 students per class, developmental courses as needed). > Combined courses with inmates and civilian student volunteers. > Mandatory training for all instructional personnel. > Academic holds which can be requested pending inmate transfers. > Student Advisory Boards at each facility. > Part-time academic counselors in each facility to provide course selection guidance. > Technology live video classes through Skype for segregated areas. > Tutoring by NJ-STEP staff and community partners. > Mentoring by formerly incarcerated persons, service providers, and civilian students who have degrees or are currently enrolled. > A pre-release meeting with an NJ-STEP Admissions Officer. > Daily food allowances provided by the host campus for halfway house residents. > Post-release reentry services including benefits screening, financial literacy, workforce development, legal services, and mentoring by NJ-STEP. > Case Planning automated risk/needs/strengths assessment to be updated before release as part of a parole plan. > A reentry council in every county.

Accepted students will be transferred to one of the participating facilities to begin their coursework. > Shared housing within the same dormitory/wing of a dormitory for Pathways inmates. > Group classes and structured study hall time for Pathways participants. > An Associate of Applied Science degree program, with the opportunity to earn a certificate after 12 credit hours in computer information technology, business administration, or entrepreneurship. > Access to increased technology to facilitate academic learning through computer labs with Wi-Fi capability and other e-learning opportunities. > Incentives provided for in-prison academic course persistence and completion. > Success teams composed of a prison case manager, prison education staff, community corrections representative, and community college or university instructors. The success team will help students transition from prison to community. The main purpose of the team is to develop an educational plan with the student to identify appropriate courses and scheduling (pre- and post-incarceration), monitor student progress, and provide any necessary support to the student during and after incarceration and after release and transition. > Success Coaches community college staff trained in the areas of human resource development, continuing education, and student support services. The success coach will meet the Pathways student while the student is incarcerated. Upon release, the success coach will be the student s point of contact on the college campus. > Pathways Navigator a navigator will be an advocate for the Pathways participant and help them connect with services that are available in the community. Navigators will help participants prepare for meetings with professors. > Local Reentry Councils in the pilot communities. > Counseling, mentoring, and other services that a student in transition from prison may need provided by North Carolina Employment and Training (NC E&T), with a focus on retention, completion, and employment. > A partnership with Division of Workforce Solutions, the Post Release Supervision and Parole Commission, and the North Carolina Community College System.
