Inside-Out Instructor Training: Faculty Grant Applications Are Now Open

We are offering three L&C faculty Inside-Out Instructor Training grants, the first of which will be awarded for training during Summer 2022. 

 

With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s “Healing Social Suffering Through Narrative” grant, we are expanding the Inside-Out courses offered by Lewis & Clark.

We’re offering three L&C faculty Inside-Out Instructor Training grants, the first of which will be awarded for training during Summer 2022. Awarded faculty will become an integral part of a growing, collaborative community of Inside-Out instructors at Lewis & Clark.

Expression of Interest is due November 1, 2021 (via a very short form found at the bottom of this page).


The grant award includes:

Financial resources The award will pay the cost of Inside-Out Instructor Training, compensate the faculty member $3000 for the time spent developing the course, and include $1000 for course expenses.

Mentorship and experiential support This award includes ongoing mentorship from LC’s experienced Inside-Out instructor Reiko Hillyer and an introduction into a worldwide network of Inside-Out instructors and resources. Awarded faculty will visit an Inside-Out class at the Columbia River Correctional Institute, meet with ODOC staff, and receive guidance and support to navigate the logistics of prison itself.


Who?

This grant application is open to CAS faculty with a passion for civic engagement, experiential learning, social justice, and/or issues surrounding incarceration. Because of the time commitment required and our hope that these courses will become part of our regular offerings, applications are limited to tenure-track, tenured, and faculty-with-term of at least three years.

The awarded faculty will become an integral part of a growing, collaborative community of Inside-Out instructors at Lewis & Clark.


When?

We are inviting applications for the Summer 2022 Inside-Out training for which one faculty member will receive the Inside-Out Instructor Training Grant.

Expression of Interest due November 1, 2021.

The final grant application deadline is January 15, 2022.

We anticipate that a new course developed through this training would be taught in Fall 2023.

The Inside-Out Instructor Training Grant will also be awarded for training over the summers of 2023 and 2024. Applications that are submitted now but not selected this year will be saved for consideration for future awards. We will also be taking new applications during the Fall of 2022 and 2023.


What kinds of new courses are we looking for?

Students incarcerated at the Columbia River Correctional Institute are interested in college- level studies in subjects which include:
