A three-week institute for twenty-five school teachers that would explore Appalachian culture and history through literature, music, and theater.

Shepherd University proposes its second three-week Summer Institute for Teachers, building upon a successful previous year's Institute and the success of two previous Seminars. The proposed Institute explores Appalachian literature and culture, emphasizing conflict, resolution and Appalachian politics in the 2018 proposed program.
