The Kellogg Institute


What is the Kellogg Institute?

The Kellogg Institute is designed to further educators’ knowledge in the theory and best practices of post-secondary developmental education.


Through scholarship and interaction among participants and seminar leaders the Kellogg Institute builds cutting-edge tools to transform learning and strengthen programs. 

  • The Kellogg Institute program is a 2-week summer residency that provides a dynamic living/learning community with opportunities for sharing ideas and experiences.

  • Each week several seminars are held that focus on various topics and combine expert-led presentations with practical applications promoting student persistence and retention.

  • Networking among professionals representing a variety of backgrounds from across the United States is a key benefit of the Kellogg Institute and participants gain practical skills to strengthen programs and inform innovations on their home campuses with research-based best practices.

  • A new Virtual format was introduced in June of 2021 and this will be a regular addition to the full Kellogg Institute program. 


We are excited to be able to offer another opportunity to attend the virtual Kellogg Institute program in 2021!
