The Crito Project is a registered teaching charity, in partnership with the University of East Anglia and People Plus, delivering accredited face-to-face higher education curriculum in UK prisons. Inspired and mentored by the Bard College Prison Initiative in the US, the Crito Project has grown since its inception nine years ago.
Today we deliver an 18-month curriculum of free higher education in philosophy, logic, ethics and literature to students serving their sentences in the east of England. We currently teach solely at HMP Highpoint, but have plans to extend our provision, our curriculum and the number of students we teach. Put simply, the Crito Project plans to reimagine what higher education is for by changing where it takes place. To read more, please visit our website: http://www.thecritoproject.org
