The Summer Institute
The 2022 Summer Institute for Equity in the Academic Experience built on the successful programming from previous years and expanded through a hybrid format, resulting in the largest gathering yet with over 430 participants from more than 40 colleges and universities and across 10 leadership sites.
Focused on thinking at the strategic and ecosystems levels, the hybrid conference – featured a virtual component (provocations, roundtables, workshops led by equity leaders from around the country) and a face-to-face component with a gathering in Washington, DC of local teams led by Georgetown and George Mason.
Again, thanks to the generous support of ATI along with Bloomberg Philanthropies, and the Gray Foundation the cost of participation was free.
