Summer Programs & Research

The EPI Summer Programs and Research Working Group focuses on the summer months as an annual opportunity to renew our college-wide commitments to diversity and inclusion. By uniting existing summer programs and creating new integrative ones, we aim to make transparent and accessible Vassar’s curriculum, resources, and traditions.

Successful summer programs should:

  1. Help to break down silos of interaction that tend to build up during the academic year,
  2. Provide time and space for students and faculty to focus on their own research and creative interests,
  3. Provide time and space for administrators and staff to share their expertise in formal and informal settings,
  4. Ensure that each member of the Vassar community is confident in their ability to navigate, belong, and thrive on campus.
