The Summer Institute is COA’s week-long ideas festival that welcomes experts from around the world to share their perspectives on the most pressing issues of our time. 

2022 Session Recordings

Session schedule & registration

The institute focuses on dialogue, conversation, and frequent interaction between and among our
invited speakers and participants.  At the core of the week are nine speaking sessions held throughout the week. The 2023 schedule will be announced in the spring and registration will open in May. 


Sumer Institute speakers

We bring the brightest, most creative thinkers and doers to the College, where some guests
are household names or the most prominent authorities in their field, and others should be
household names or such authorities. We will begin to announce speakers after the New Year.
