ABE Summer Institute is Minnesota’s annual statewide Adult Basic Education conference. The Institute is co-sponsored by Literacy Action Network and the Minnesota Community Education Association. Held every August, the conference brings together more than 500 educators for three days to learn new teaching techniques, discuss policy changes, examine trends in ABE, and connect with peers from across the state.
