Curtis Summer Bridge promotes self-exploration in STEM

We are excited to announce the inaugural James L. Curtis Institute for Race and Belonging Summer Bridge Program began this week. Powered by a U.S. Department of Education Title III grant to expand STEM programming access to historically underrepresented student populations, the Summer Bridge is designed to promote student success. With intersecting topics focused on people, places and things, this interdisciplinary bridge fosters the most authentic spirit of the liberal arts education and self-exploration. During this three-week immersive learning experience, students learn the history, language and sociological factors that impact our environment. Additionally, students will participate in cultural opportunities that further enrich their learning. This summer bridge is made possible thanks to the collaborative efforts of our colleagues in the Office of Belonging, the Cutler Center for Student Success, Student Life and Community Living.
