Isaac Scott

Arts & Communications Specialist, Justice-in-Education Initiative

Columbia University

He is a self-taught graphic designer and fine artist. His passion for justice reform runs deep, as he is directly impacted by the criminal justice system and its disenfranchising nature. He was released form prison after serving 7 years of a 9 year sentence during which he became extremely interested in social justice and inequality.

           
​During the summer of 2015, he was selected to be a Justice-in-Education Scholar at Columbia, and was a significant part of two write-ups of the program (one of which was in New York Times). Isaac currently serves as the Arts & Communications Specialist for the Justice-in-Education Initiative. He is also a lead research assistant in the Social Relations Lab at Columbia’s Psychology Department, conducting research on the employment-seeking experiences of formerly incarcerated individuals.
