Teaching & Research
We draw on the great range of faculty expertise at NYU, and in New York City, to teach and to show how a liberal arts education in the humanities contributes to our society’s capacity to succeed. Faculty from across the university develop and teach the Liberal Studies curriculum offered at Wallkill Correctional Facility and also provide ongoing academic advising for students after their release. In addition, faculty and students conduct research on campus aimed at understanding and addressing the on-going carceral crisis.
This section of our website aims to share in more detail about our curriculum and resources for educational justice focused teaching.
