MASS - Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program (Northampton & Ludlow)

Simone Davis, Kristin Bumiller, and Martha Saxton (current professors in the program)

Population Served: People who are incarcerated at Hampden County Correctional System and Hampshire County House of Corrections (also currently exploring expanding the program to other county facilities in the region)

Program Description: Amherst College and Mount Holyoke college professors Kristin Bumiller and Simone Davis adopted the Inside-Out model developed by Lori Pompa, who began the program to try to remove the boundaries created by classism, racism, and the stigma attached to incarceration. Under the Inside-Out model, college students and incarcerated students with all varying levels of prior education can enroll in courses at local jails. There are equal numbers of inside and outside students.

College/University/Organization Partnerships: Five Colleges (Amherst, Smith, Hampshire, Mont Holyoke and UMASS)
