Who: FTCC Faculty Professional Development
What: Postsecondary Pathways| The Invisible Student | The Experiences of Justice Impacted Learners
A college education can be the gateway to opportunity. However, opportunity is not equal and often, it is predicated on identity and experiences. Unfortunately, students with carceral experience (justice-involved/impacted individuals) often encounter cultural and systemic barriers. Such barriers adversely affect these students’ access to needed resources and degree completion. Higher education stakeholders must contend with the structures that are in place for justice impacted students and decide if they are sufficient to ensure the wholistic achievement of these learners. This conversation will humanize the experience of justice impacted students, identify the supportive structures that are in place and pinpoint areas where growth is needed.
