Summer College at IC – whether online or on campus – is a program designed to help students understand and practice how college works. Students still are supported virtually by Resident Advisors, peer leaders who encourage community-building, peer-to-peer connection, and who provide regularly-scheduled social activities when students aren't in class.
Students engaged in IC’s online Summer College program – now in its 28th year – learn hands-on about getting to college, succeeding in the classroom, and making the most of life outside of classes.
IC Summer College faculty and staff are committed to racial equity. Both white-identifying students and students of color are engaged throughout the program in conversations that explore race, antiracism, and what it means to be in an inclusive classroom. In keeping with Ithaca College's mission to Educate, Engage and Empower through Theory, Practice, and Performance, students not only talk about racial equity, they get the chance to live it, too.
