Newcomb Summer Session is a selective pre-college program designed to educate students for gender equity, offered by Newcomb Institute of Tulane University. Students entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year of high school will get a preview of the college classroom while forming a strong community centered on exploring gender issues and social change.
With more students joining the public conversation on gender and society – from the campus “confidence gap” to the #MeToo movement – Newcomb Summer Session empowers students to put feminist ideas into social action. Through discussion-based seminars, workshops, and collaborative projects, students gain strategies for taking on leadership roles in and beyond the classroom, finding a public voice, tackling real-world social issues, and strengthening college applications.
