Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison Executive Director Sean Pica (NC ’01) was recently appointed to the Founding Board of Directors for the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison.
The mission of the Alliance is to support the expansion of quality higher education in prison, empower students in prison and after release and shape public discussion about education and incarceration. The formation of the founding board comes after a year of planning and visioning, including a Strategic Partners Workshop that Hudson Link hosted at Sing Sing Correctional Facility. The workshop was attended by more than 60 students, educators, college administrators, corrections officials, funders and policy advocates.
Congratulations to Sean as he continues the trailblazing work at Hudson Link and through the initiatives advanced by the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison!
