Summer Institute for Burgeoning Scholars
Office of State Grants Summer Institute
Burgeoning HEOP scholars are required to participate and attend a four-week session as mandated by the State Education Department (scheduled dates: July 2 - July 25, 2014). Scholars are also required to attend Ithaca College Orientation June 30 - July 2, 2014 (tentative dates).
The REQUIRED four-week institute provides a valuable and exciting preview of rigorous coursework at Ithaca College. Incoming first-year students collaborate with each another as they adjust to the demands, creativity, and expectations of higher education at Ithaca College.
The Summer Institute offers five academic courses which focus on social development, mathematical and writing skills, a seminar structured course on "Exploring Psychology in Everyday Life," and academic success strategies. Besides an interdisciplinary academic experience, the Summer Institute provides career, cultural, social, and leadership development, along with recreational activities on the campus, in the Ithaca community, and regionally within New York State.
As participants emerge from successfully completing the Summer Institute, they will have achieved student empowerment, self-efficacy, and confidence to grow as Ithaca College scholars. See photos.
