In the latest installment of the Faculty Focus series, Lori Pompa—founder and director of the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program and criminal justice instructor in the College of Liberal Arts—discusses the growth of that educational program and the impact it has had since its inception in 1997.

“We never could have anticipated how powerful this experience would be and when I hear from people that it—this educational process—has changed their lives, I can’t imagine doing anything but this,” she said. “Temple has been a really wonderful home for Inside-Out—for where it has gone and where it will to go in the future.”
