About the event
The purpose of our Institute is to center social justice and equity in literacy education. By critically examining our own biases and the systems in which we live and work, we can act to disrupt injustice. As participants, presenters, and organizers of the Institute, we come together as a community of learners to inspire one another, to learn, and
to take action.
Aligning our work with Hamline University’s vision for equity and inclusive excellence, we are committed to creating an inclusive community of literacy educators.
