CSSFCI will provide educational opportunities for Miami University graduate and undergraduate students to become knowledgeable about the impact of incarceration on children, caregivers, and families.

Universities across the country are providing their students with opportunities to work with children and families of diverse communities. These experiences come in the form of service-learning courses and based on findings from the service-learning literature, students engaged in these experiences develop a host of skills including leadership, communication, problem-solving, and improved academic achievement.
