The Mountain Institute is a series of week-long adult continuing education courses that run May-June on campus, as well as traveling courses around the world.

Warren Wilson College is pleased to announce the launch of the Mountain Institute, a continuing education program for lifelong learners from the Asheville region and beyond. The Mountain Institute will run from May to June, and will include week-long courses on our beautiful campus in Asheville as well as traveling courses worldwide.

Registration for our worldwide courses is now open! See the courses and register here. Our priority registration date to claim a spot in a traveling worldwide course is February 1st (but seats may fill sooner).

Our week-long on campus courses will be announced in January, with registration open from January through April. Check the Mountain Institute website for more information!

These courses highlight the unique magic of Warren Wilson College, which has been a hub of experiential learning since its founding as the Asheville Farm School in 1894.
