Welcome to the 2022 Summer Institute on Equity in the Academic Experience! 

Our goal for the Institute is to help your campus team connect your project:

  • to a specific equity issue that will serve as a high-leverage opportunity for your progress.

  • to the strategic equity goals of your institution.

  • to similar work happening in other parts of your institution.

  • to the broader higher education equity ecosystem, including institutions with common geographic and/or project interests.

The 2022 Summer Institute on Equity in the Academic Experience is hosted by the American Talent Initiative and the following leadership sites who shared responsibility for the planning and programming:
Claremont-McKenna College | George Mason University | Georgetown University | Ohio State University | Pennsylvania State University, Harrisburg | Princeton University | Rutgers University, New Brunswick | University of Iowa | University of the Pacific | University of Pittsburgh | Xavier University of Louisiana
