"Why Do They Return? Deconstructing the Prison Recidivism Paradigm"
Start Date: 11/13/2017Start Time: 4:30 PM
End Date: 11/13/2017End Time: 6:30 PM

Event Description:
Despite progressive efforts toward restructuring how the system prepares incarcerated individuals for re-entry into their home communities, little is understood about the factors that determine whether someone re-offends. Erin Corbett ’99 argues for a closer examination of the limited educational and postprison employment opportunities that contribute to the phenomenon.

Erin Corbett ’99 is the founder and CEO of Second Chance Educational Alliance Inc., a nonprofit that provides participating ex-offenders with access to postsecondary opportunities. She completed her doctorate of education from the University of Pennsylvania in May.

Sponsored by the Swarthmore College History Department, Black Studies Program, Black Cultural Center, and Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility.
