Exploring Other Perspectives
“I saw the criminal justice
Shawn Cammy '10 participated in Arcadia's "Inside/Out" Course, a unique, experiential course affiliated with the national Inside/Out program. Class meetings take place at a Philadelphia County prison. Half the students in the class are designated Arcadia students (outside), the other half are inmates (inside). This course also is an example of a Glenside-based course that fulfills the Global Connections Experience requirement for undergraduate students
"The Inside/Out course allowed me to interact with inmates in a classroom setting at Philadelphia's House of Corrections. We explored criminal justice issues and even collaborated on research projects. The class allowed me to view the American Criminal Justice System through the eyes of people who are currently in it."
