Summer Institute

Thanks to all who joined us for the

2019 Summer Institute!
Willamette University College of Law, Salem, OR

We had a fantastic time of learning and collaboration with:

    • Governor Barbara Roberts, former Oregon Secretary of State, Lieutenant Governor, and Governor (1991-1995)
    • James Fitzhenry, former White House staff for President George H.W. Bush as Assistant Director of the Office of Policy Development and the Office of Cabinet Affairs
    • Misha Isaak, General Counsel for Governor Kate Brown.
    • Justices of the Oregon Supreme Court, in a conversation about the Court’s relationship to Oregon’s governor

This year, participants worked together in curriculum teams to design curriculum lessons and units they will share in December at the Oregon Civics Conference for Teachers!
