Three Perspectives on the Inside-Out Program

In this podcast, we hear from Carrie Oser, associate professor in the Department of Sociology, Michele Staton-Tindall, associate professor in the College of Social Work, and Damien Angel, a former student of the College of Social Work, as they talk about their experiences with the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program. This course, centered around cooperation between “Inside” incarcerated students within the Blackburn Correctional Complex and “Outside” students from the University of Kentucky, explored drug dependency, its relationship with crime, and policy related issues regarding this problem. This course was a first for both Lexington and the University of Kentucky and shaped new perspectives while also establishing a bond between Inside and Outside students.
