Hosted by:

The Pennington School

112 W Delaware Ave.

Pennington, NJ 08534


*Residential option encouraged*


The Diversity Institute at The Pennington School extends the Harkness principles of collaborative, student centered learning, and enables educators to help students learn about themselves as they are learning about others. Additionally, you will learn skills and acquire resources to have engaging dialogues with your students and colleagues; dialogues that offer academically rigorous, and personally challenging, yet potentially transformative experiences.

Participants will experience a week of Harkness discussions, self-reflection, experiential learning, and collaboration, to gain powerful insights about educating students in environments that are ever more diverse and intercultural.

At the Diversity Institute at The Pennington School, you will learn:

  • How to select course materials that present social justice themes and principles.
  • How to use cultural studies vocabulary and texts to discuss themes that deal with race, class, gender, sexuality, and other identity issues, in history, literature and in our daily lives on campuses.
  • How to use cultural studies literacy to engage students and colleagues in discussions about privilege, and other power dynamics
