Tri-College Identity, Equity and Social Justice Summer Institute (Tri-Co)

The Tri-College Identity, Equity and Social Justice Summer Institute (Tri-Co) is an 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.

Tri-Co 2015 will take place from August 19-24. 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 who are not participating in ISO or early-returning athletes are invited to apply; however, spaces are limited to 20 participants. Those selected should plan to arrive on campus Tuesday morning, August 18. Students in Tri-Co will be able to move into their academic year rooms at that time.
