There are many different ways to participate in the Oakhill Prison Humanities Project.

Donate to the project!

We were fortunate to use grants secured by Professor Judith Kornblatt, Professor Manon van de water, and student-based grants and scholarships for this program, but our funds are limited. Please help to secure the future of this worthwhile programming! Funds are used to purchase books to donate to the prison for inmate use and to print posters advertising our courses to inmates in the prison. In the past, graduate student volunteers purchased these materials with their own money. Please help us to make this project sustainable!
