There will be more than 500 Arts, Media, and Entertainment educators and industry professionals in attendance.

The final day of the Burbank Institute, June 28, will also be Community College Day. This day’s special programming will be hosted by the Television Academy Foundation and will feature panels and speakers for the Community College AME educator. Community College educators can add this day’s special programming onto their three-day Institute ticket for an additional fee or they can purchase a single-day registration.
