When the University of Vermont started offering liberal arts courses in prison for credit, some thought the program should instead teach trades or vocational skills. Kathy Fox, founder and director of the UVM Liberal Arts in Prison Program, explains how everyone can be transformed by exposure to a liberal arts curriculum.

Kathy Fox is Associate Dean in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Vermont, and the founder and director of the UVM Liberal Arts in Prison Program (LAPP).
