The Justice Impacted Students Training Series will present “Important Considerations When Working with Formerly Incarcerated Students,” from noon-1:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21, on Zoom.
Two programs at Cal State San Bernardino – Project Rebound and the Center for the Study of Correctional Education – have joined together to deliver the Justice Impacted Students Training Series, with remaining sessions set for Nov 4 and Nov. 11. It is a joint initiative hosted by Project Rebound, the Center for the Study of Correctional Education, Faculty Center for Excellence, Staff Development Center, and Division of Student Affairs.
The session will be facilitated by Alexandra Cavallaro, associate professor of English and director of the Center for the Study of Correctional Education, and Annika Anderson, associate professor of sociology and director of Project Rebound.
"We created this training series to uplift the voices, experiences, challenges and successes of the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated participants in our programs," said Cavallaro and Anderson. "Throughout our years as directors of our respective programs, there has been a tremendous amount of support from our campus administrators, including our president, deans and departments.
"However, moving forward, we see this series of workshops as an opportunity to educate various stakeholders, interested parties and the campus community about how best to serve our participants. We also hope to learn of any barriers that may exist in garnering support by creating an open dialogue and safe space to discuss and address concerns."
