The Summer Institute offers women administrators and faculty intensive
training in education administration. The curriculum prepares participants
to work with issues currently facing higher education, with emphasis on
the growing diversity of the student body and the work force.
The purpose of the Summer Institute is to improve the status of women
in the middle and executive levels of higher education administration,
areas in which women traditionally have been under-represented.
Now, the Summer Institute seeks to enrich the leadership of North-American
higher education by providing its participants with skills and information
pertinent to the management and governance of colleges and universities;
timely information and perspectives on teaching, research, and service
in the 21st century; and a stimulating environment in which to identify
and energize career goals.
