Here, There, Everywhere
The Berklee Summer Initiative (BSI) was launched in the summer of 2017 to foster a strong sense of African American community, support, and cultural history on campus for entering students of color. The week-long, early orientation program brings alumni back to campus for interviews, small group sessions, and a 90-minute panel discussion. This year’s program featured four alumni panelists, two alumni from Berklee and two from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. The panelists shared stories and insights about their student experience and career paths and offered words of encouragement to the entering students.
