FYE Steering Committee

The First- and Second- Year Experience Steering Committee

Building on the cornerstone of Student Success, this committee is charged with ensuring that our First- and Second- Year Experience courses are accessible, relatable, engaging, and responsive to our contemporary educational environments. This means the committee will continue to develop materials, practices, and opportunities that prepare students to become self-directed learners capable of authoring their own educational experiences. This committee, therefore, will help develop and revise our course cores, ensure quality as those courses develop, engage with stakeholders, provide advice and feedback, and make recommendations in this development.  

The committee is happy to consider solution-based recommendations. If you have ideas you’d like the First- & Second-Year Steering Committee to consider, please submit those ideas here.
