Community Life

The small size of Castle Rock groups makes attention to issues of community and group dynamics central to life at the Institute. Students share a great deal of common experience-- eating meals, taking classes, traveling, studying and preparing for class, just hanging out. Consequently, it is important that everyone choose to act responsibly, make decisions that benefit the group as a whole, and be honest in their interactions with others.

Building a sense of community, seeing the friendship, support, encouragement and trust that goes along with it, helps improve almost every other aspect of the program.
