2022 Summit

Uncovering the “Hidden Curriculum” of Academia

Thursday, March 10 to Friday, March 11, 2022 (virtual)

Digital program available here.

Hosted by Middlebury College, the 2022 Creating Connections Consortium (C3) Summit will be a virtual event and will bring together participants from both liberal arts colleges and research universities.

The Creating Connections Consortium is a cross-institutional collaboration among liberal arts colleges and research universities dedicated to progressing the goals of inclusion and full participation in the academy. We are especially focused on facilitating pathways into graduate study and the professoriate for a diverse group of undergraduate and graduate students, and on initiating and introducing cross-institutional structures that will build and support these changes in the culture of higher education.

Over a thousand undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, administrators, and staff participated in the last five Summits combined, gathering to collectively focus on diversity and innovation in the academy.

Goals for the Summit include: providing opportunities for intellectual development and communion, skill and strategy building, fostering mutual learning, and developing strong and sustainable networks between participants.
