Collaborative Team Learning with World-Class Learning Partners

Summer Institute is a unique educational experience designed for CEOs and their teams to learn about a selected theme from world-class learning partners. AFIT learning partners are recognized quality leaders in their field and have demonstrated success with the selected theme. The themes are strategically chosen based on members’ needs, and they build on each other from one year to the next. During the program, teams participate in interactive learning activities and benefit from “team time” to discuss key concepts and translate them into actionable solutions that fit their institution’s needs.
