Summer Agriculture Institutes (SAI)

Summer Ag Institutes are opportunities in which Cook County teachers can partake in week long field trips across the state of Illinois, or within Chicago, to learn about agriculture in Illinois. These institutes are hosted in conjunction with Aurora University in order to receive graduate credits or continuing education credits (PDCH).
