Third World Transition Program Coordinator Ngoc-Tran Vu '10 writes the Ground Rules.

The freshman class of 2013 awoke this morning to breakfast in the Verney-Woolley Dining Hall, or V-Dub, and then ambled over Andrews Dining Hall for their first morning of TWTP. Today’s agenda is packed with energizers, a faculty panel, Third World history tour, and of course the first of the “ism” workshops, racism. But before the freshmen dive into this conversation, the TWTPCs facilitate a discussion on ground rules. These rules are essential to creating the “safe space” that allows for open and honest discussion on difficult subjects. Below are the ground rules for TWTP 2009:
