Absence from your job during Spring Institute

You will not be able to continue to work during the Spring Institute as participation in the face-to-face classes is mandatory. Classes run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each weekday. Because of the intensity of the experience, group work is essential and you may need to meet or confer outside of class time. There is a heavy reading load, materials to prepare, and research to be conducted in the library. It's reasonable to expect that the Spring Institute will occupy most of your time during this period.
