The Knapsack Institute on the Road brings the KI, or our more limited workshops, to you. We work with Universities, K-12 schools, organizations and businesses.

Campus Knapsack Provisions

Because the workshop is flexible, we can tailor it to your specific needs:

On your campus, we will provide participants with:
  • An intersectional conceptual framework for understanding concepts of oppression and privilege;
  • A wide range of innovative teaching strategies that we have found successful, including:
  • Building an inclusive classroom,
  • Setting the stage on the first day of class, 
  • Managing emotions and reactions in the classroom, 
  • Dealing with resistance to change, 
  • Empowering students toward positive growth in the classroom and beyond,
  • How to find support and resources for doing this challenging and often difficult work.

K-12 and Non-Profit Organizations

We have designed special Knapsack Institutes geared specifically toward K-12 educators and toward non-profit organizations. Each institute can be custom tailored to better suit each organization's needs.
