The Virginia Consensus for Higher Education in Prison is an initiative of the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy. The initiative that engages stakeholders from a variety of sectors: corrections, higher education, justice-impacted, faith, business/employers, and public officials in a process of consensus-building and strategic planning to expand access to college degree programs for incarcerated individuals in Virginia prisons. The initiative is generously funded by a $750,000 award from the Ascendium Education Group, a national leader in support for higher education in prison (HEP) initiatives.
