The Office of the Dean of the Graduate School and GradFUTURES will host the 2022 MLA Summer Teaching Institute in Reading-Writing Pedagogy at Princeton the week of July 11-15. The Institute will devote special attention to anti-racist pedagogy and indigenous populations. Other 2022 Institute locations include the University of Missouri, St. Louis (June 6-10) and California State University, Los Angeles (June 26-30).

MLA regional summer Institutes, which are made possible by support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, aim to strengthen the teaching of English reading and writing at access-oriented colleges and universities, community colleges, and other institutions of higher education that emphasize access and equity. Princeton is hosting the eighth summer Institute, each of which have focused on engaging with academics teaching at (or interested in working with) access-oriented institutions.

In particular, Institute participants receive intensive training in pedagogical theory and practice, as well as strategies to facilitate the study of the humanities in vocationally-oriented educational contexts. Participants work to build stronger connections between introductory college-level reading and writing courses and upper-level humanities courses. Participants work closely to better understand how to support and deliver high-quality instruction to students at access-oriented institutions, especially first-generation college students, students of color, students from historically underserved communities, and Pell Grant recipients.
