  June 28-30     Summer Institute on Teaching Social Action
Apply to participate here | The Bonner Foundation is hosting a free virtual Teaching Social Action Summer '22 Institute. This three-day institute will introduce faculty and staff to an approach for incorporating social action campaigns into either a semester-long course or co-curricular workshop series. In this transformative experiential learning model, students develop and launch a social action campaign of their choosing during the term the course is taught. The student campaigns seek to change a rule, regulation, norm, or practice of an institution, whether on campus or in the community.
There is no cost to join the Teaching Social Action Summer Institute. However, we are seeking faculty and staff who are committed to implementing this experiential social action course model. For more information, see the Teaching Social Action Summer '22 Institute webpage. Please direct questions to Kristin Harper at
