What is expected of students? What is expected of mentors?

Printer-friendly version

The summer program is a core part of the research and education mission of Harvard Forest. While every student, mentor, and project is different, we place high expectations on all the students and their mentors to ensure everyone has an excellent, albeit demanding, research experience. These expectations are stated explicitly for mentors and students and program staff seek to ensure all participants understand them and act within this spirit.
Students are expected to comply with the Code of Conduct, which they sign as part of their acceptance materials. This code clearly states that all illegal drug use is prohibited and only students who are of legal age to drink may to do so, and even they are limited to specified occasions while on Forest property. No alcohol is allowed to be stored in student dorms, regardless of the age of the purchaser. The Code is taken quite seriously at the Forest and violation of it may lead to discipline or dismissal from the program.
