*Please note: Based on guidelines from the CDC and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, changes to our pre-orientation programs may occur.

Prior to the start of Orientation, Clark will hold four free pre-orientation programs sponsored by the offices of Multicultural and First-Generation Student Support, Student Accessibility Services, and International Students and Scholars. These programs are designed to provide a strong foundation for success during your time at Clark, and in future endeavors. All programs will provide you with a peer mentor, along with opportunities to make friends and connect with campus resources.

ACE Summer Institute

The ACE Summer Institute is the University’s free, three-week program for students who identify as first-generation college students or students of color.


Connections is a three-day leadership-themed program that gives incoming students of color an opportunity to build community and be a change agent at Clark.
