Interesting, fun, engaging, and informative ones! Most course themes reflect subjects that students, faculty, and staff have always wanted to learn, but never had the time. Check out the course listings to the left.Who will be teaching courses?
Faculty, staff, and students will be teaching and facilitating courses and activities. In addition, a select group of community members will be invited to lead various seminars.Can anyone teach a course?
Yes, anyone can teach a course. There are some requirements for teaching though. An in-depth proposal needs to be completed in order to be considered for instructing a course. Student instructors will be asked to give a brief five-minute presentation on their proposed course.Can students just walk into a course without registering?
No; in most cases, there will be a limit on how many students can participate in each course due to materials and space limitations. Registration dates will be posted soon.Is there a minimum number of courses a student has to take?
If you are interested in signing up, you should note that there are minimum requirements for participation. You need to sign up for one core morning course and at least one afternoon seminar each day.
Morning courses have duration of two and a half hours per day and meet each of the three days. Seminars, on the other hand, can last as little as 30 minutes or go as long as three hours, and last just one day. There is also entertainment available each evening.Is there a maximum number of courses a student can take?
Time constraints restrict students from signing up for more than 4 classes during SUMMIT. Besides, it's your winter break. This program is not designed to add any more stress to your life. Take it easy and live it up.Will there be academic credit given?
Sorry, academic credit will not be given. Courses will not be long enough to justify awarding academic credit.How can I help?
