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. Seminars combine expert-led presentations with practical applications promoting student persistence and retention.

The summer residency provides a dynamic living-learning community with opportunities for sharing ideas and experiences. Networking among professionals representing a variety of backgrounds from across the United States is a key benefit. Seminar topics will cover the most current issues and methods in the field in 2020.

Join us for two weeks of professional and personal renewal on the campus of Appalachian State University in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina!
