On the Cutting Edge of Justice and Healing

The School of Undergraduate Studies (SUS) at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) launches the first inaugural Summer Institute. In June 2017, we offer four intensive workshops on the cutting edge of justice, healing and reconciliation. Seminar leaders have decades of experience in their fields, whose work is also integrated in how they walk in the world. This summer they bring their creativity to CIIS and offer workshops that they themselves have not taught before.  Aligned with CIIS pedagogy, summer institute workshops are grounded in experiential, didactic and multi-modal approaches to learning.
