About BPI
The Bard Prison Initiative (BPI) enables incarcerated men and women to earn Bard College degrees. Established in 2001, BPI has more than 300 students across six New York correctional facilities, where they enroll full-time in liberal arts coursework representative of the four academic divisions of the college-The Arts; Languages and Literature; Social Studies; and Science, Mathematics, and Computing. More information about BPI and examples of subject areas offered at bpi.bard.edu.

BPI offers small, seminar-style courses taught in person at the same standard as on the main campus. Faculty are hired on a per-course basis; there are no full-time positions available. Stipends depend on the type of course and frequency of class meetings. Candidates interested in full-time administrative positions that include teaching should check BPI postings listed under "Administrative Positions

Following an academic semester calendar, each course meets once or twice a week for fifteen weeks during the fall or spring semester, or for a shorter term over the summer. Classes are held Monday through Friday, and class periods are two hours.

Faculty are responsible for their own transportation to and from the facilities where they teach. Two of the six prisons where BPI operates are accessible by MetroNorth, with a short taxi ride to the prison:

  • Taconic Correctional Facility in Bedford Hills
  • Fishkill Correctional Facility in Beacon
The other four are only accessible by car:
  • Coxsackie Correctional Facility in Coxsackie
  • Eastern NY Correctional Facility in Napanoch
  • Green Haven Correctional Facility in Stormville
  • Woodbourne Correctional Facility in Woodbourne
To Apply
Faculty interested in teaching for BPI can apply by submitting a CV and a brief letter of interest that should include a list of courses taught, an indication of which prisons are within commuting distance, and a note about which semester or semesters they are available through Interfolio.com at: http://apply.interfolio.com/46163

For most but not all subject areas, Ph.D. or other terminal degree is required.

Review of applications is ongoing, as course needs vary from semester to semester. The BPI administration will contact applicants when there is an opening that matches their subject area and availability.

Bard College is an equal opportunity employer and we welcome applications from those who contribute to our diversity.
