None of Telluride Association’s programs could succeed without the participation of the many university faculty members who teach our summer programs and live in our branches.
Telluride Association Summer Seminars (TASS) are designed to bring together young people from around the world who share a passion for learning. TASS-CBS (Critical Black Studies) offers seminars in Critical Black Studies, and TASS-AOS (Anti-Oppressive Studies) offers seminars in Humanities and Social Studies using anti-oppressive and anti-racist frameworks. Both programs are an exciting opportunity to teach bright, engaged high school students in their first university experiences.
Telluride Association also funds residential houses at the University of Michigan and Cornell University. At the Telluride Houses, we provide room and board scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students, and these housemembers recruit a small number of Faculty Fellows each year. Faculty Fellows enjoy free room and board, provide the House with seminars or lectures, contribute to dinnertime conversation, and generally enrich intellectual life at Telluride House.
In addition to year- or semester-long Faculty Fellows, the houses offers hospitality to visiting scholars in town for lectures or performances.
