Pre-Sessions

This year, we are offering two optional pre-sessions for Summer Institute participants.

These pre-sessions are open to anyone who is registered for Summer Institute and do not require any additional registration. They will occur from 2:00–5:00 pm the day before Summer Institute begins. Each pre-session will be 85 minutes.

Participants can attend one or both of the optional pre-sessions. More information about room locations will be provided to participants closer to the start of the Institute.
