Lion Term

Lion Term is a two week program that launched in May 2017. Students have a form-based experience focused on the desired educational learning outcomes for intellect, character, and leadership outlined in the SM2020 Strategic Plan. Lion Term provides students and faculty a learning structure outside of the traditional classroom and school week. By approaching a single topic through the lens of interdisciplinary and experiential education over an extended period of time, students will have the opportunity to take appropriate intellectual and academic risks, pursue and cultivate new interests, tap into resources within the local and global communities, and prepare to be active and engaged participants at the university level and beyond.
