The MSAN Institute is a two-day, intensive professional development opportunity dedicated to growing our understanding of how school districts develop equity-focused leadership and nurture cultural competence.
Join committed colleagues from across the United States as we:

  • Share current research and best practices with local & national experts.
  • Push our thinking in large and small group discussions with exceptional educators doing this work in real schools and districts.
  • Hear from students most intimately impacted by these issues.
  • Engage in focused district planning sessions and job-alike conversations.

Register Online by March 18, 2020

Each MSAN district receives free registrations for up to six (6) participants at the Institute.  A registration fee of $275/person will be charged for individuals after the initial six attendees.

A registration fee of $375/person will be charged for non-MSAN district participants.

Registration is transferable but not refundable.
