“Through the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the MLA hosts regional summer institutes to strengthen the teaching of English at access-oriented institutions (AOIs)—community colleges and other colleges that prioritize access over selectivity in admissions. Between 2019 and 2022, the association will have organized eight regional summer institutes for those who teach at AOIs and those who would like to make their teaching careers at them.
We invite applications for the 2022 regional institutes from doctoral students in English and related fields and from part-time and full-time instructors at access-oriented institutions.
Housing and meal expenses for the institute will be covered, and participants will receive a $2,500 stipend for their participation. Completion of the institute will qualify the participant to receive the MLA Certificate in Reading-Writing Pedagogy at Access-Oriented Institutions.”
There are three locations that are hosting these summer institutes, whose dates are scattered throughout the summer months:
University of Missouri, St. Louis: June 6–10, 2022
California State University, Los Angeles: June 26–30, 2022
Princeton University: July 11–15, 2022
Applications must be submitted by March 25, 2022.
