First Year Advising Seminars

The initial round of first-year advising seminars funded by the Mellon Race, Place, and Equity program took place in Fall 2021. Eight professors in various disciplines in Arts and Sciences, and three in the School of Architecture, worked alongside approximately 35 community members to teach 200 first year students. The program was featured in this article in the Cavalier Daily at the end of our first semester.

We are thrilled by the success of these courses, which generate tremendous enthusiasm from professors,  students, and community members. We are now accepting proposals for our fourth round of courses, to be taught in Fall 2024. 

Below please find our current Call for Proposals, and the imaginative and varied list of courses generated by faculty involved in this initiative.
