Our Academic Initiatives

Our academic initiatives are designed to increase learning opportunities for first-year students —— both in and outside the classroom. From participation in the arts and one-credit courses to leadership training and undergraduate research, we hope that engagement with our programs and events will:

  • promote the exploration of new interests and fields
  • enrich our students' academic, cultural, and social lives
  • connect them with faculty and academic advisers in ways that go beyond formal interactions
  • strengthen their sense of community and belonging
