David Coogan’s “Strip Poker: A Writing Workshop at the City Jail”

April 15, 2009

David Coogan’s Prison Writing Workshop proposal was accepted as one of VCU’s 10 Exemplary Projects, and submitted for national competition for inclusion on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. The Honor Roll, launched in 2006, recognizes colleges and universities nationwide that support innovative and effective community service and service-learning programs. The award is given each year to only a handful of institutions and is the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning, and civic engagement. His project on prison writing is one of four nominations selected from the College of Humanities & Sciences as one of VCU’s 40 Acts of Caring competition for VCU’s 40th Anniversary. The 40 Acts of Caring competition was established to identify the 40 projects that best represent the breadth and diversity of VCU’s university-community partnerships.
