It is also possible that some interactions may rely on ZOOM, embedded in IC's Canvas platform.

A residential coordinator is in charge of non-academic portions of the program including residence life. In addition, a staff of Resident Assistants (RAs) will be working with students during the program. This team of RAs is closely supervised by both the residential coordinator and the program director. It is the policy of this program that all participants must be accompanied by an adult staff person in the program. Participants will not be allowed off-campus unless part of a program event or trip where adult supervision will occur. The program's faculty director, Joslyn Brenton, also has specific responsibility for academics and academic advising. All program staff and faculty receive training and are background checked in accordance with the College's Minor Protection Policy.

Violations of the program or student conduct code are addressed in accordance with our Summer Pre-College Program Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures process.
