Summer Institute to Engage Holmes Students in Policy Arena
On June 4, AACTE will welcome more than three dozen students to the Holmes Summer Policy Institute in Arlington, Virginia, as part of the Association’s Washington Week. This annual institute connects students with advocacy work at the intersection of education research and policy.
Throughout the day, interactive panel discussions will explore topics such as advocating for students of color, using social media for research and advocacy, and partnering with grass roots organizations and other advocacy groups. Featured panelists will include representatives from national organizations and associations such as UNCF, EdTrust, and HBCU Buzz. The Holmes institute participants will also receive a policy briefing and join an evening reception with the leaders of AACTE’s state chapters.
Following the institute, Holmes students are invited to stay in town to participate in AACTE’s Day on the Hill, which convenes June 5-6. On June 5, a full day of orientation and training will prepare attendees for advocacy on Capitol Hill the next day.
