Participant's Guide to the
Due to the demanding schedule of the Teacher Institute, we do not recommend bringing your family. Institute activities may last from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. with limited breaks during the day, leaving very little time to spend with family. Because rooms, meals, and evening programs are reserved months in advance of your week, we are unable to accommodate your family members at any of our scheduled programming (this also includes tours within the Historic Area). Many of the rooms contain twin beds, also not affording you the room to share with additional people other than your assigned roommate. If you decide to book a private room, we do not do a nightly “bed check,” but you are expected to participate in all of the scheduled programming to receive full credit for the Institute and to be eligible for the graduate credit.
Many participants interested in sharing the experience with their families have them join them for a few days at the conclusion of the Institute. Think of the tour guide you will make once you have all the historical content and anecdotal stories to share!
