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 2-week 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.

Kellogg Institute participants gain practical skills to strengthen programs and inform innovations on their home campuses with research-based best practices.

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