The Inside Out Prison Exchange Program was started two decades ago. Yet, Howard University offers the only co-ed courses at a Research Comprehensive HBCU. Classes began during Fall 2014 and currently take place at the D.C. Department of Corrections. Howard University was the first university to offer co-ed secondary courses at the DC Jail. This course brings "outside" students from Howard University together with "inside" students from the DC Jail, to explore issues of mass incarceration in the contemporary United States. This panel discussion will provide insight from various Inside Out instructors through an interdisciplinary lens. The discussion will highlight pedagogy and praxis, inside and outside student outcomes and assessments revolving around course objectives.
