Welcome to Shad UPEI! The University of Prince Edward Island (AKA UPEI) is excited to be hosting Shad, an award-winning national enrichment program that brings top high school students to university campuses across the country every July. While we won’t be able to have Shad participants travel and live on campus this summer due to the pandemic, we are making plans to bring people from UPEI to you!
We’re planning an amazing program for July 2021, which will include inspirational lectures, and workshops drawing from UPEI faculty and staff, a diverse selection of workshops developed by our fantastic team of Facilitators and incredible keynote speakers from across the country. A major focus is our design project where participants will work in teams on a real-world design challenge. We’ll also make time for non-academic activities such as some virtual recreation activities and regular social events. And because this is Prince Edward Island, we’ll definitely include some of the island’s incredible cultural activities!
Ultimately, we are designing our program around Shad’s mission: to empower exceptional youth to make the world a better place.
