APAEP Alabama Prison Arts + Education Project

Partner with APAEP

By partnering with multiple on and off campus departments, universities, state offices and non-profit organizations, APAEP builds dynamic teaching and learning opportunities for Auburn University students and faculty. This distinctive outreach opportunity builds a path for students and faculty at Auburn, as well as individuals throughout the state of Alabama, to engage with an underserved portion of Alabama’s population. These partnerships also help to develop engaged scholarship and research projects.

Auburn University

APAEP, a program in the College of Architecture, Design, and Construction, partners with the Colleges of Science and Math, Agriculture, Engineering, Liberal Arts and Education. We also work closely with Auburn University’s Office of Outreach.

Alabama Colleges and Universities

APAEP has a strong partnership with the University of Alabama’s MFA Creative Writing Program to offer Prison Arts Fellowships to UA graduate students as well as UA faculty. Faculty and Graduate Students from Auburn University at Montgomery and University of Alabama at Birmingham have also worked with APAEP.

Alabama Department of Corrections

APAEP works closely with the officers, wardens, and commissioners of the Alabama Department of Corrections. Support from the staff of the ADOC is critical to the success of our program.
