MiddCORE Remote

MiddCORE 2020 will be delivered through remote learning. You will have a combination of small group sessions with mentors, prerecorded sessions, podcasts, community building reflections, and collaborate with peers. Synchronous classes will be required and will be from 9:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. (EST), Monday through Friday with group work requirements outside the synchronous class hours. Although it is a Pass/Fail course, passing the course requires 95% attendance (i.e., you may miss one class for sickness or other excused absence) and 110% effort.
