2021 Summer Institute on Equity in the Academic Experience

The work of the Summer Institute will be animated by a set of design principles that seek to help campuses develop an integrated and agile approach to institutional change that ensures a future in which a more diverse and inclusive institution supports a more holistic definition of student success.

Jointly hosted by
Georgetown University, the University of Texas at Austin, and Xavier University of Louisiana
in collaboration with the American Talent Initiative (ATI)
