Third Eye Books Accessories & Gifts LLC is happy to be the community book provider to University of Oregon's Prison Education Program (www.uoprisoned.org).
The Prison Education Program was established in 2016, building on over 10 years offering for-credit classes in Oregon Prisons through the Inside-Out Program.
In addition to offering upper-division classes, we also have a variety of not-for-credit activities, including.
Book discussions, including bilingual discussions conducted in Spanish and English
Academic workshops, including academic writing and communication skills
Lectures by UO faculty on a wide variety of subjects
Coordinated engagement between clubs at OSP and corresponding clubs at the UO
An on-campus exhibition of inmate artwork donated to the program (Spring 2019)
Book donations to multiple prisons, including special requests from staff at the prisons for particular subject areas and Spanish language
We work in an interdisciplinary academic framework, and with a broad range of students, campus organizations, community groups, and national organizations working to improve educational opportunities in prisons.
