CPEP Alumni Reflections
A publication of Cornell Prison Education Program alumni reflections about their lives after the program
The 2020-21 academic school year marks the first time in decades that instructors and student TAs from the Cornell Prison Education Program (CPEP) won’t travel to regional correctional facilities to lead in-person college courses. Like students everywhere, incarcerated students are navigating the new terrain of remote learning.
Amidst this new environment, this project team is launching an alumni magazine to highlight the work and lives of CPEP alums. This project will feature former CPEP students and their lives after the program and examine how CPEP has influenced them. This will be an annual project that keeps up with the lives of alums as they navigate their life outside of CPEP. Cornell undergraduate students will be paired with alums and work with them to write a profile on their lives and design their features. The final product will be a print magazine dispersed to the Cornell community.
Topics: Access, Equity and Justice; Arts, Communication, Media and Design; Culture, Language and History; Education
