Forum on the issue of providing college opportunities for currently and formerly incarcerated students.

The panel will highlight some of the ethical issues that arise, including whether we should prioritize incarcerated students nearing release over those serving lengthy sentences, liberal arts education over one that is directly linked to employment opportunities on the outside, and the quality of various forms of college education.

This event is co-sponsored with the Stanford Criminal Justice Center.
