Summer Institute

A virtual institute focused on building equity and social justice education and providing participants with ideas, tools, and resources to create inclusive learning environments on campus and online. For college faculty and professional staff.

Experience the transformative power of our immersive multi-day Summer Institute, designed to empower and inspire activists, educators, scholars, and professionals alike. Embark on a journey of learning and growth as you immerse yourself in a dynamic environment filled with unparalleled opportunities.

Throughout the institute, you'll have the privilege of gaining insights from SpeakOut speakers, some of the foremost experts in their fields. Our carefully curated lineup of leading experts is dedicated to sharing their wealth of knowledge, providing you with invaluable perspectives that will enrich your understanding and fuel your aspirations.

But it's not just about passive learning — be prepared to roll up your sleeves and engage in hands-on, interactive workshops that will equip you with practical tools and strategies. These workshops are thoughtfully designed to empower you to put theory into action, ensuring that the knowledge you acquire during the institute translates into tangible results.

One of the most rewarding aspects of the Summer Institute is the opportunity to connect with a diverse cohort of change-makers. You'll be surrounded by like-minded individuals who are all driven by a common goal: to make a positive impact. The network you build during these days will extend far beyond the institute, becoming a source of ongoing support, collaboration, and inspiration.

As you participate in the Summer Institute, you're not only investing in your own growth and development but also in the betterment of your institutions and communities. The skills you acquire, the connections you foster, and the ideas you cultivate will collectively contribute to a ripple effect of positive change.

Elevate your aspirations, broaden your horizons, and become an even more effective catalyst for change. Join us at the Summer Institute and let's embark on this transformative journey together. Your commitment today will shape a brighter tomorrow for us all.
