We are now accepting First-Year Seminar proposals for Fall 2017. First-Year Seminars introduce students to college-level learning, facilitate their transition to the University, and provide them with an opportunity to work closely with UI faculty, staff or a senior-level administrator. Instructors must obtain approval from their DEO or direct supervisor prior to submitting a proposal. In addition to faculty, executive and instructional staff may submit a proposal for review. Merit staff and graduate/teaching assistants are not eligible to teach a First-Year Seminar.
