Location & Housing
Mathematical Leadership Programs (MLP) summer institutes are held on the Mount Holyoke College campus in South Hadley, Massachusetts. The campus is within walking distance to some nice restaurants and small shops. Class sessions and lunch will take place on campus. Free parking is available.
Our institutes are offered during 3 one-week time blocks: Monday July 8 to Friday July 12, Monday July 15 to Friday July 19, and Monday July 22 to Friday July 26. Participants may attend one, two, or all three weeks.
Attending a summer institute requires a serious commitment. Sessions are held between the hours of 8:30am and 4:30pm Eastern Time Monday through Thursday and from 8:30 – 12:30 on Friday. In addition, reading and writing assignments are scheduled for each evening.
Participants will make their own arrangements for overnight housing if you require it. You will also need to make arrangements for breakfast and dinner. Lunch is provided daily.
South Hadley is a small New England town. Hotels are located in neighboring cities and towns within a 15-20 minute drive of Mount Holyoke College. We recommend Homewood Suites in Holyoke, MA because they offer complimentary breakfast and evening socials with appetizers and beverages each day.
