For fifteen years, Max Kenner has been working to redefine the relationship between justice and education in the United States. In 1999, he founded the Bard Prison Initiative (BPI), which is now the largest and most influential college-in-prison program nationwide. Today, BPI enrolls 300 incarcerated students fulltime in academic programs that span the breadth of liberal study and culminate in associate and bachelors degrees. Nationally, Kenner is a leading advocate on this issue and the program is being replicated in ten states.

Recently, he was a Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award recipient, a 2013-'14 fellow-in-residence at the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History at Harvard University, and appointed to serve on Governor Cuomo’s New York State Council on Community Re-Entry and Reintegration, Re-Entry Subcommittee.
