The University Faculty Senate (UFS) Committee for Higher Education in the Prisons, established in 2010, is a consortium of faculty and staff across the City University of New York, coordinated through the University Faculty Senate.  Members support the educational aspirations of incarcerated men and women, and have volunteered their time for a number of projects, including:

  • Conferences and research on criminal Justice and reentry matters
  • Classes for incarcerated students
  • Assistance for re-entering students at CUNY
