The Alabama Prison Arts + Education Project

is a program at Auburn University dedicated to bringing educational opportunities to prisoners in Alabama. The program is helping the adult prison population to gain a quality education, and also to build a relationship with learning that will continue to grow for the rest of their lives.

APAEP provides access to sustained and quality educational experiences in the arts, humanities, hard sciences, and human sciences. APAEP believes that education provides a fertile field for transformation and growth and that these learning experiences contribute to the positive development of the person.

As one Warden said of our programming, "I can always tell who is a participant in the Alabama Prison Arts + Education Programming because they present an air of purpose, they are challenged and driven to succeed in learning. They know education is a key for their success when they get out."
