Summer Institute

What is Summer Institute?

SEL Program participants begin their college journey with our fully funded Summer Institute, which takes place August, 2019. Incoming students take classes (one for credit), are assigned a peer mentor, partake in fun excursions off campus that promote bonding and team building, have assigned times to meet professors, and take care of paperwork before everyone else arrives on campus. This gives our students an informed start to their college career!
