Tiffany Kallam

I am originally from Bemidji, MN but have resided in Greensboro, NC for 11 years. I graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Community and Justice Studies and a minor in psychology from Guilford College in Greensboro, NC in May 2012. I then attended Wake Forest University where I received my Master's in the Study of Law.
Driven by a strong sense of community and conviction to the value of transformative education and justice  I have collaborated with amazing individuals who encompass the same values of equality and justice, to spearhead efforts and ground significant support to launch a practical liberal arts prison education initiative through Guilford College.
During my time at Guilford I had the honor of being a Justice and Policy Studies Outstanding Student and Barton Parks Community Justice awards winner and  presented my work of  issues of mass incarceration and the school-to-prison pipeline at Guilford College’s Undergraduate Symposium and NC Conference: Our Responsibility to Oppose the Abuse of State Power towards a More Humane Society.
My research has focused on not only the quantitative data of the justice system but overwhelmingly on the qualitative data; the stories that give meaning to the numbers, working with people in all areas of the justice system.
I was awarded the Center for Principled Problem Solving Fellowship to advance my efforts around higher education in prisons. Thus, I decided to attend the intensive Master's Study of Law at Wake Forest to delve deeper into the laws and policies that influence the criminal justice system and prison culture.

I am honored to have the unyielding support and privilege to work with such brilliant, inspirational individuals involved with higher education in prisons, here in North Carolina and throughout the United States.

Beyond my work and study, my life is filled with the love of my two beautiful sons; Brendan and Roman.
