Collection: University of Oregon / Coffee Creek Collection

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.

    The Prison Education Program also works with UO students through an internship and "alumni" program. Students are involved in assisting with classes, running a discussion group at a juvenile facility, holding outreach events with at-risk youth, and running book drives to support prison education.
