Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work


The Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program brings together "outside" students from universities and "inside" students from correctional institutions. Founded in 1997 at Temple University in Pennsylvania, the program has expanded to more than 150 colleges. Faculty in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Work at the University of Dayton began offering an Inside-Out class in Spring 2016. "Transformational" and "life changing" are commonly used to describe the program. The class is offered to a limited number of students in the Spring semesters; informational sessions take place in the Fall semesters. Students are required to complete an applications, interview, and background check.
