Existing Freshman Pilot Initiative - We have partnered with the Center for Learning and Student Success (CLASS) , to pilot a “research and inquiry exposure” focus into several Freshman Learning Communities and Living Learning Communities through a common course SLS 1502 which students are required to take. From the FLC and LLC offerings, eight wonderful instructors have agreed to partner with the QEP and implement a research and inquiry focus to their SLS course. They are currently developing course materials which expose students to the excitement of discovery and develop student specific skills (QEP student learning outcomes).
