Higher Learning has hit a new low.

INSTITUTE is a brutally fresh and playfully offensive comedy about working at a university. There will be no blowhard stories of professors trying to do right in a world gone wrong. There will be no stories about students finding their voice as they strongly forge ahead into adulthood. No, none of that bullshit. This is about the employees and the administration, the temps and the has-beens, and how they traverse the follies and foibles in a highly sensitive and highly competitive workplace we call The INSTITUTE.
