The residential life LINC curriculum ensures that students become knowledgeable, responsible, caring, and contributing members of society. Six dedicated instructors teach LINC classes for Third- and Fourth-Formers. In classes of 12 or fewer students, topics such as cultural competency, diversity and inclusivity, personal identity, sexuality, drugs and alcohol, gender, and wellness are explored. Students also attend small LINC classes focused on issues surrounding sexual intimacy, bystander intervention, and how to successfully transition to college life.
The LINC curriculum is based on a well-established developmental framework that hones student competencies in five critical areas: self-awareness; self-management; social awareness; relationship-building; and positive decision-making. It is a broad-based curriculum that we’re delivering in the classroom, on the fields, and in the entire house experience.
Three student-initiated, student-led LINC Days are held each year on topics of importance to community life, including economic diversity, LGBTQ, wellness, and gender identity.
