Two-Part Structure

Part 1

Students engage in a series of programmatic offerings including clubs, classes and concentrated endeavors under the umbrella of the program they selected.

Part 2

Students complete a capstone project during the spring term. Throughout their senior year, Signature Program students meet weekly with their sponsoring faculty advisor to guide and further enrich their experience. The sponsoring faculty member will meet regularly with the student to ensure they are on-track and supported in this endeavor; however, the capstone project is intended to be a fairly independent project.

Students are supported and encouraged every step of the way!

Rumsey Signature Program participants will benefit from meeting regularly as a community of inspired learners. Each student will be guided by the unit’s sponsoring faculty member.
