Community Education Project hosts Guest Lecturer Nov. 13

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Community Education Project, we are excited to invite you to a guest lecture by Erin Castro, Assistant Professor of Higher Education at the University of Utah and the Director and Co-Founder of the University of Utah Prison Education Project (UPEP).

Dr. Castro will be discussing the responsibilities and ways colleges and universities can get involved in higher education in prison programs in this era of mass incarceration. The main event will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 13, in the CUB Garage Room from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., but we also invite you to join us for informal conversations with Dr. Castro an hour before the talk in Elizabeth Hall 207.

Both events are part of our year-long Learning Series designed to promote dialogues about incarceration and higher education among faculty, student, staff and communities outside Stetson. We also want to take this opportunity to thank the Center for Community Engagement, History Department, Honors Program, Latin American and Latino Studies Program, La Casa Cultural Latina, Nina B. Hollis Institute for Educational Reform, and Phi Beta Kappa for their support in bringing Dr. Castro to Stetson.

We look forward to seeing you and your students at Dr. Castro’s talk and a meet and greet with our guest.
