Finally, you must meet with Dr. Raggi Moore to discuss your interest in the program.

Your conversation will revolve around the notion of TRACE as a quest, or a pilgrimage. It is an opportunity for participants to pause, look thoughtfully, think about the evidence observed, and wonder how this relates to our interactions with others and to our understanding of self. The Summer in Italy program is a rare opportunity for such a quest. What does “others” and “otherness” mean to you at this stage in your life? How does your understanding of your relationship with others relate to the future profession you wish to undertake? What do you seek through your pilgrimage to Italy?

There is no right or wrong answer to these questions; rather we are looking to see how you perceive, negotiate, and dialogue with, and about, the liminal space between ourselves and our life objectives.

Program application is not considered complete until deposit is received by the Center for Ethics and student has received a receipt.
