Senior Jim Schelberg's "Partners in Philosophy" Prison Program Featured in Washington Post


Senior James Schelberg’s “Partners in Philosophy” program, a series of summer classes he and several Washington College professors taught to inmates at the Jessup Correctional Institution, was featured prominently in the Washington Post. Education reporter Daniel de Vise attended the final class of the summer, where he witnessed Art History professor Donald McColl teach about ethics issues in art history.

In addition to classes developed and taught by Schelberg, himself, earlier lessons were taught by philosophy professor Kevin Brien, English professor Philip Walsh, and C.V. Starr Center director and history professor Adam Goodheart, all of whom volunteered their time and expertise at the Maryland prison.
