LVC 2023 Summer Enrichment Program group

DEIB Summer Enrichment Program

2023 Program

The Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging welcomed incoming students for the Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) from Saturday, July 29–Saturday, August 5, 2023.

We had the pleasure of hosting 11 enthusiastic first-year students on campus for an intensive six-day experience. It was a joy to witness their energy and excitement as they engaged with our campus and community partners, creating connections that will undoubtedly shape their LVC journey.

Common Questions

No. You will move into your permanent residence hall in August, prior to the start of the semester. However, you will have the option to store belongings that can fit into a small storage container (18–gallon tote).

There are no meal or program activity costs for students during the Summer Enrichment Program (SEP). However, additional expenses such as night snacks, items purchased during shopping trips, etc. are the responsibility of each student.

All SEP participants are expected to be actively involved and attend all program activities. The more you put in, the more you will get out of the program. This is the sole reason you are on campus at this time and we want to help you succeed.

In Their Words

With the Summer Enrichment Program, I enjoyed the week-long activities hosted by the DEIB office, both on and off campus. SEP was helpful in establishing a close-knit multicultural community in which I made many friends of different backgrounds and met amazing mentors! Whether you are a first-generation student, part of the LGBTQ+ community, or BIPOC, with SEP, you will belong, make life-long friendships, and be supported by various individuals in your transition to college.

I’m extremely grateful to have the opportunity to attend the SEP program. It allowed me to experience what is expected of an incoming resident student by learning about the different campus locations, hearing the stories from our mentors about their experiences, and attending various programs to put us in the college mindset. Most importantly, it allowed us to build connections before starting our first semester, which I see as an immense confidence boost.

SEP was a great program for minoritized students to learn about and become accustomed with the campus prior to Orientation. It was also wonderful to meet other minoritized individuals who are coming to LVC. Making friends and knowing that there is a community for you is one of the best feelings.
