Faculty, students, staff and community members have worked over the past five years to develop a prison education program at New York University. With the support of a substantial Ford Foundation start-up grant, the program launched in January of 2015. Our program continues to expand and deepen its work because of the resources and vision provided by offices and people at New York University and through generous contributions from volunteers, and Funders including: the Ford Foundation, the Mellon Foundation, and the Criminal Justice Investment Initiative and the Manhattan District Attorney Office.
