Come learn about Prisoner Express, and experience the power and the humor of poetry from behind the bars.

Refreshments will be served.


Prisoner Express is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded to promote rehabilitation by providing information, education and opportunities for creative self-expression to incarcerated men and women. The provision of education reduces recidivism, ultimately saving money and resources currently used to warehouse prisoners. Prisoner Express steps through the isolation and alienation of prison life to bring hope, education, and fosters a sense of community among the prisoners who participate.

Summer 2016 - Cornell in Zambia

Politics and History of Southern Africa

Students in the College of Arts and Sciences can apply for funding by filling out the travel form at: http://as.cornell.edu/sites/as/files/AfExTrAw.pdf

Interested students should stop by Day Hall B20 to enroll, submit a deposit and the authorization form.

This three-week course will introduce students to the history and politics of Zambia and, more broadly, southern Africa. It will examine the history of European settlement in southern Africa, the liberation wars and the independence process, apartheid and its effects in southern Africa, and post-apartheid democracy in southern Africa.

In addition, this course will prepare students for higher level courses on African history, ethnic conflict, and cultural theories.

This program is designed for students who are interested in the history of the settler states, federation, and liberation wars in southern Africa and want to know about the effects of apartheid on southern African economies and about post-apartheid southern Africa and the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).

Voices of African Mothers (VAM) is a United Nation NGO started by Nana Fosu-Randall in 2004 to empower African women and girls. This summer will be the fourth time Cornell students travel to Ghana to participate in this enriching service-learning experience! The program will be a 6-8 week commitment from late June to early August. Students in the program will be participating in development and education work at VAM’s many project sites with opportunities for individual projects in virtually any desired area, including schools, hospitals, rehabilitation clinics, co-ops, and more. In addition, students in the program will have opportunities to experience Ghanaian culture and visit cultural sites. Students who apply should be self-motivated, demonstrate superior leadership and teamwork abilities. Prior international experience is not a must, but is preferred. Upon acceptance to the program, funding opportunities will be discussed. Please contact Blake Brown (btb52), Lala Xu (lqx2), or Emily Martey (ebm72) with any questions, comments, or concerns. We look forward to reviewing your applications!
