About the Summer Institute

The Summer Institute on Sexuality strives to provide a unique opportunity for scholars, students, and professionals to explore contemporary research and practice on sexuality and gender, to develop professional networks, and apply new knowledge and skills to their work. We hope to accomplish this by drawing lecturers, presenters, mentors, and participants from wide range of backgrounds, interests, and areas of expertise, to come together to create an amazing educational community for the duration of the institute and beyond.

This year’s program offers weekend, full week, and single session options open to undergraduates, graduates, and professionals who want to expand their knowledge and practice around sexuality and gender. This year the theme is “Intersectionality: Navigating Sex, Relationships, and Identities”. Participants will engage in a wide variety of lectures and presentations on various topics relating to the theme.
