The Cornell Prison Education Program supports a regional collaboration that brings together Cornell faculty and graduate students to teach a college-level liberal arts curriculum to a select group of students at four regional correctional facilities. The Cornell Prison Education Program is dedicated to supporting incarcerated persons' academic ambitions and preparation for successful re-entry. We believe that Cornell faculty and student engagement as instructors at correctional facilities manifests Ezra Cornell's commitment to founding an institution where "any person can find instruction in any study."
The CPEP computer lab seeks to provide a model for the use of computers in prison education. The computer lab is used by many CPEP programs, including courses for the SUNY Associate in Arts (AA) and Cornell Certificate in Liberal Arts courses, writing workshops and the Writers Bloc literary journal. Beyond word processing, incarcerated students use the lab to conduct research, learn basic computer skills, watch educational programs, and (we hope) learn computer programming.
The CPEP computer lab coordinator is responsible for facilitating use of the computer labs at four correctional facilities near Cornell University. As of Summer 2019, two of these computer labs are built and configured. The Computer Lab Coordinator would be expected to participate in, and ideally contribute to building out, the third and fourth computer labs in the prisons.
This is a 20 hour/week term position ending December 2021 with the possibility of extension based on funding, successful performance and the needs of the program.
Bachelor's degree with 1 - 3 years' related experience or equivalent combination of education and experience is required.

Must be comfortable working with an incarcerated clientele.
Experience with financial management, accounting, event planning, and volunteer organizations.

Valid driver's license and ability to travel to prison locations required, including occasional trips to NYC. Flexibility in schedule, including the possibility of evening hours.
TB test required.
Masters or higher with college-level library or computer lab experience. Knowledge of issues related to prisons and/or education for underserved populations. Experience with adult learners working with computers; especially experience in prison setting highly preferred.
