None of Telluride Association’s programs could succeed without the participation of the many university faculty members who teach our summer programs or 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.
Self-governing Communities for University Students
Telluride Association also funds houses, or “branches,” at the University of Michigan and Cornell University. At these Telluride Houses, we provide room and board scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students. A few faculty members in Ithaca and Ann Arbor live as guests in these branches.
