Schedule

Classes begin each day at 8:00 a.m. in The Statler Hotel and typically end in the late afternoon. It is strongly recommended to complete all of the pre-work assignments prior to arrival. You can plan to read or review any pre-reads or assignments on free evenings. While a laptop is advantageous to use for certain sessions, we ask that you avoid distractions that may detract from the immersive learning experience.
