The program for the 10th anniversary Atlantic Summer Institute on Healthy & Safe Communities is now online and available for download. Important program updates have been finalized, and we are pleased to present a tighter three-day program running August 19-21, rather than the three and a half day program originally planned. Expect the same high-quality learning experience as previous Summer Institutes, with a stronger, more cohesive focus over the three days of programming. We can’t wait for you to join us!

Join our Pre-Institute Workshop!
Begin your ASI experience with our optional Pre-Institute Workshop, “Elections and Long-Term Democratic Engagement of Citizens”. Marie Burge of The Cooper Institute is facilitating this workshop, which takes place 9am-12pm, August 19 in the CAST Building of Holland College.
About the Workshop:
Elections & Long-term Democratic Engagement of Citizens is an interactive workshop designed to address the concern that democratic elections often do not deliver long-term democratic citizen involvement. Participants will share their experience of election processes and identify values that either promote or hinder long-term democratic engagement. Working together, participants will propose changes and strategies for making electoral processes contribute to long-term citizen/community engagement in building strong democracies.
The public is invited to take part in this workshop and the workshop-only registration fee is $20.
