Event Details:

Join The Michelson 20MM Foundation on March 13, 2024, as they highlight the University of California, Irvine’s (UCI), Leveraging Inspiring Educational Futures Through Educational Degrees (LIFTED) program, which is currently the only UC program teaching inside prisons.

In the midst of their second year, the UCI LIFTED team will discuss the process of developing their programs, how they are incorporating California’s Best Practices: Pathways From Prison to College, and the barriers they have yet to overcome. Additionally, we will have a special guest from UC Riverside LIFTED as they get ready to kick off the second UC program teaching inside prisons this coming fall.

Pathways From Prison to College in Action highlights programs and organizations throughout the state that are currently implementing California’s Best Practices: Pathways From Prison to College, a resource that lays out detailed strategies to support currently and formerly incarcerated students in their educational journey.

The “In Action” series highlights programs and organizations across the state implementing strategies from the report. Michelson 20MM is committed to ensuring that all currently and formerly incarcerated individuals have an equal opportunity to succeed as students and beyond.
