Summer Bridge Scholars are Off to a Great Start

The Summer Bridge Scholars Program is an opportunity for incoming students from historically underrepresented communities to meet before the fall semester and get acquainted with Northeastern. This year, participants learned more about resources on campus and had the opportunity to be taught a sample class by Régine Jean-Charles—Director of Africana Studies, Dean’s Professor of Culture and Social Justice, and Professor of Africana Studies and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies—and Amy Farrell—Director of the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Co-Director of the Violence and Justice Research Lab, and WGSS affiliated faculty.

They build a community that is very supportive and that is one of the key goals of it.
