About Summer Institute

Rowan Cabarrus Community College is committed to ongoing development of its faculty, and proactively supports and encourages continued development to enhance the faculty’s educational background, former training and instructional expertise. One example of this commitment to faculty development is the Summer Institute, which is hosted each summer by the Center for Teaching and Learning.

Summer Institute provides faculty with various tracks of professional development subjects via workshops and collaborative activities. Internal and external speakers are invited to present on a variety of topics, such as student engagement, retention, class management, technology tools and applications, instructional trends, College initiatives, innovations in instruction, etc. The length of the Summer Institute is dependent on College schedule and available budget.
