A three-week institute for twenty-five middle and high school teachers on abolitionism and the Underground Railroad, using upstate New York as a case study.

Colgate University proposes a three-week summer institute on Abolitionism and the Underground Railroad in Upstate New York between 1830 and the Civil War. This institute will bring together 25 middle and high school teachers with a director, supporting faculty, and a master teacher for close study of key readings, documents, and site visits. During the three-week institute, participants will gain fuller understanding and knowledge of the importance of abolitionism and the Underground Railroad in New York State and nationally. Lectures, discussions, readings, site visits, and other events will serve these purposes. Each session is carefully crafted to provide contextual and focused information and theory about these two powerful currents. A special aspect of the institute is the incorporation of historical societies and sites in the region.
