Flying University - prisoner education program

The Flying University - Courage For Community:
Dialogues on Hope and Higher Education in Alaska’s Prisons

The Flying University is a prison education program initiated by Dr. Sol Neely in 2012 that brings UAS students and community members inside Lemon Creek Correctional Center for mutual and collaborative study in the fields of philosophy, literature, and critical theory. We invite you to join the UAS Alumni & Friends Association and associates of the Flying University for a set of community dialogues on building and sustaining access to higher education in Alaska’s prisons.

  3. Community advocates

Learn more about the Flying University, including its history, aspirations, and challenges for delivering quality educational opportunities inside our prisons. Learn more about how you can support this endeavor and network with other prison education efforts across the state.
