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 generated tremendous enthusiasm from professors and students alike. In Fall 2022 we are offering ten advising seminars across the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Architecture. We look forward to supporting a similarly broad scope of offerings over the next couple of years!

Below please find the imaginative and varied list of courses generated by faculty involved in this initiative, and stay tuned for future Calls for Proposals.
