The National Council on Crime and Delinquency Newgate Resource Center. Final Report by Rex Herron( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The origin and development of Project NewGate are described from 1971-74. (The project presents a model program of higher education for incarcerated offenders, consisting of the in-prison phase, transitional phase, and release phase.) Specific project characteristics are discussed and include a 4-year academic program for prison inmates; an in-prison component which offers a full-time, fully accredited academic program; therapy; career, academic, and personal counseling services; a transitional phase (school release, school furlough, early parole) which enables the inside-program participant to transfer his program to the college campus intact with therapy and counseling services as well as full financial support; a release phase (parole or discharge) offering continued services and full or partial financial support as needed; and NewGate staff (director and counselors), who maintain a neutral administration concept separate from prison and university financial control. Evidence from the literature is offered as support for this type of correctional treatment approach. Other areas discussed are the growth of prison higher education programs and the objectives of the NewGate Resource Center. A final section (21 pages) discusses problems confronting the development of new programs based on the NewGate demonstration model and is titled "The NewGate Resource Center: Issues Faced by the NewGate Expert as Change Agent in the Replication of the NewGate Demonstration Programs."
