Program Highlights

Tri-C’s partner institution is Cleveland State University. During the summer, both schools work together in hosting the Summer Institute, which is a two-week summer bridge program that helps students refresh their math skills. The program orients students to the college environment, helps them learn the resources offered to them & encourages student engagement, in order to build a peer network.

One of the experiences offered to our students is Job Shadowing and through our Career Services department, a recent LSAMP student said: ”Doing job shadowing in dentistry and optometry allowed me to get familiar with the specifics of the procedures and treatments performed in the clinics. Having a closer view into both professions, helped me identify what I liked and wanted to pursue in my future career."
