Summer Institutes on Academic Diversity

Please check back for 2020 dates.

About the Conference:

Each day of the week features Carol Tomlinson presenting in a morning session, followed by anchored attribute sessions and breakout sessions tailored for individual grade level, subject area, or job specific needs.  Registration is completed through an online form and payment system.  Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.  No spaces can be reserved without payment.  The conference runs Monday through Friday, with an orientation meeting on Monday morning prior to the start of the first session.

Making Your Plans:

The Institute registration fee includes conference materials and catered meals each day for breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack.  Dinner is on your own.  Participants are responsible for arranging transportation and accommodations for the Institute.  The Monday - Thursday sessions will begin promptly each day at 8:00 a.m. and will end each day at 3:45 p.m.; the Friday session will begin at 8:00 a.m. and end at 12:00 noon.

Large Groups:

For school districts wanting to send large groups but do not have the names of the participants at the time of registration, please fill out the 'Contact Person' area on the registration form with someone who can be a contact for the group.  Please fill in the number of participants who will be attending on the registration form with 'TBD' and then pay for those spaces.  'TBD' participant names and email addresses should be provided no later than two weeks prior to the start of the conference to Kim Jennings at ksj5r@virginia.edu.  Please note: the online registration and payment form can only handle fifteen participants at one time.  If you will be sending more than fifteen participants from your district please contact Kim Jennings at ksj5r@virginia.edu to arrange registration and payment.
