The Summer Tri-College Institute

Consider applying to participate in TRICO 2013


The Tri-College Identity, Equity and Social Justice Summer Institute is a weeklong orientation sponsored by Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore Colleges for first-year students who are interested in exploring issues of identity, power, privilege and social justice. The institute focuses on the ways in which such power dynamics relate to race, class, sexuality,gender, ability, and religion; participants will explore how these social identities relate to one another.

The goal of the program is to enable first-year students to gain knowledge and skills needed to thrive in the curricular and co-curricular areas of campus life; and learn how to become effective social agents for change within their own institutions, in the United States, and the world.

The 2013 Summer Institute will take place from August 21-27. Participants should enter the program with the understanding that they will engage in a process of development and change as they learn about themselves, their identity groups, systems of power and their institutions. All entering first-year students are invited to apply; however, spaces are limited.
