18th Summer Institute at Stanford University

Pedagogies and Practices for Successfully Reaching Black Students

Welcome to ABEN's 18th Summer Institute!

It is a 2-day, IN-PERSON event happening this June 14-15, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. PT, on the Stanford University campus! Eight of our 10 first institutes were held at Stanford in partnership with its Graduate School of Education (GSE) and two were at UCLA with its Center X School of Education. We took a four-year hiatus to work on statewide policy and returned to Stanford for four more institutes before going virtual for the past three years.

On June 14, we will hear from Dr. Christopher Emdin, Queen Taese Snowden, and Tyson Amir.  The next day, June 15, we will learn from Dr. Joi Spencer.  If you did not read the detailed biographies about these brilliant presenters in our advertising material, please download the brochure at the bottom of this page!

After lunch on Day 2, attendees will have two hours to create tentative plans for how to implement what they learned from one or more speakers. Attendees will then return to the Oak Room and have the opportunity to present their plans. This is where best practices surface. So many great ideas are generated!

To enhance opportunities for more engagement from attendees since we are back in person, we have added what are called Collaborative Community Conversations to take place after the speakers. This is a powerful tool that you might be able to use in your own work.

Each day will open with a libation to honor the ancestors who paved the way for us.

Don't miss out on what will be another extraordinary institute. Register soon. It will sell out early!

Please check back soon!
