Our SHAD campuses build their programming around a theme of national significance, which changes each year and is released the first week of each annual session. We present our participants with big, complex issues and ask them to find bold solutions, working together with their peers to bring their ideas to life.
“We don’t want you to prepare. It’s about doing something unexpected, because that’s how you truly learn,” says Dr. Chad Harvey, Co-Director of SHAD McMaster. “When you challenge and push exceptionally bright students and it’s not easy, that’s when you see the growth. And that’s how our whole program is designed.”
