View Institutes Registration Information

Summer Institutes provide educators and administrators with quality instruction, knowledgeable speakers and faculty, and strategies/techniques to take back to the classroom.

Institutes for Educators are offered in an intensive one week-long format*. Scheduled in the summer, Institutes typically run Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for a total of 37.5 contact hours. Pre-and post-assignments are required of all institute participants.

Our teacher institutes offer 3 graduate credits (90 hours of Act 48 credits), which can be applied towards a master's degree in an appropriate graduate program at Millersville University. Please check with your advisor to ensure credits can be applied toward your graduate degree.
