School Highlights

Summer bridge course

A summer bridge program was offered prior to the start of the 2021–22 academic year in collaboration with the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. An introduction to the communication arts and sciences, the course gave students an opportunity to earn academic credit. Such programs have proven effective in encouraging retention of first-generation and BIPOC students by allowing them to meet and bond with peers from similar backgrounds, interact with upper-level students who become de facto mentors, and discover academic resources with which they might otherwise not be familiar.
