Attendance Commitment
Successful program completion requires that participants engage with the entire program. This includes attending all program days, the orientation session, graduation, and also participating in project teams, readings, and preparation in between sessions. Should circumstances arise that require a participant to miss a program day, participants should contact program staff. Participants who miss more than one program day, or miss both days of a retreat, will be asked to leave the cohort and will have the option of re-joining the program for the subsequent year, if they choose to participate again.
