22-24 June, 2023
Summer Institute for Faculty in Political Studies
The registration deadline has been extended to May 31st.
Please contact email@example.com to register.
The annual Summer Institute brings together 15+ faculty and/or staff for two days of workshops, discussions, and networking. For 2023 we invite faculty who work with politics, international relations, comparative politics, political sociology, and political anthropology.
Engage with peers:
Discuss common challenges, identify successes, and build strategies for strengthening programs on your campus. Using an interactive form, we explore topics related to political studies in a public liberal arts context. Results of these discussions form both a shared resource and a springboard for further collaboration among COPLAC programs.
Connect with colleagues:
Enjoy informal conversations with peers, networking opportunities with colleagues, and excursions with friends in the relaxing mountains of North Carolina. The 2023 institute will be held on the beautiful campus of UNC Asheville.
The Institute concludes with a session identifying shared best practices; crafts a plan of action for institutions to reach aspirations; and forms recommendations to administrators. This effort is presented to the COPLAC Board of Directors.

Programming focuses on shared issues. As you register online, select topics you believe will be valuable to discuss with COPLAC peers, indicate which sessions you’d like to facilitate, and suggest additional topics for discussion.
