ELSI is open to current Haverford sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Current Freshmen are not eligible.
A residential 12-day experience (Monday, May 15-Friday, May 24), ELSI is an intensive and rigorous program, requiring participants to play active roles in discussions and as discussion leaders, and to broadly support their cohort’s activities.
A key feature of ELSI is the residential component. Participants will be housed together on campus, in Leeds Hall, and cannot remain in their current housing. Move-in is likely Sunday, May 14 (afternoon).
All participants are expected to fully participate in every session during the 12-day program. The program cannot accommodate delayed start dates or early departures due to other summer plans.
With Customs leaders, ELSI participants will be asked to co-facilitate workshops for Customs groups, focused on an ethical case study, so that more Haverford students are introduced to the importance and complexity of ethical thinking and ethical decisions.
Participants will receive full room and board, and may keep all program materials.
Participants who successfully complete the ELSI program will receive a $250 stipend.
