Peabody Professional Institutes

View our 2016 Peabody Professional Institutes Brochure.

Peabody Professional Institutes (PPI) provide short-term, intensive educational experiences for professional educators and administrators during the summer. Each institute draws from social science disciplines and professional fields of study to create a comprehensive and focused curriculum. Designed with the same expectations for rigor and depth as Peabody College's degree programs, our institutes rest on the philosophy that good practice is best derived from, and informed by, a strong theoretical base.

Summer fellows have the opportunity to engage in a unique professional development experience. Higher education administration or in the independent school leadership track fellows can expand their understanding of how educational organizations function and the theoretical perspectives which undergird good practice and leadership. The classroom teachers track helps fellows expand their teaching methods and their own content knowledge. PPI fellows possess a set of tools to enhance the effectiveness of their home institutions and that will propel them in their careers.
