The AS-L Summer Institute

The AS-L Summer Institute was an opportunity for faculty and lecturers to reflect on prior AS-L courses and think deeply about the value of community engagement. We revisited student coursework with AS-L outcomes in mind, engaged in revising course assessments, and otherwise worked to improve AS-L courses we teach. Participating faculty were also invited to provide input on the upcoming Carnegie Classification application. 


The facilitators for this program were:

  • Zuzana Tomas, Professor of ESL/TESOL/Fulbright Scholar, Dept. of World Languages
  • Jessica (Decky) Alexander, Professor of Theatre and Director, Academic Engagement Programs, Engage @ EMU

Meeting dates and modalities are as follows:

  • Monday, May 20 (on campus)
  • Tuesday, May 21 (online)
  • Wednesday, May 22 (on campus)

We will meet each day from 9:30 AM until 2:00 PM.


Faculty who participated in all three sessions received a $375 honoraria.
