First Seminar Program Community

Faculty Excellence

The First Seminar Program courses provide a unique blend of discipline-specific questions, community-engaged learning, experiences that go beyond the classroom, and first-year student mentoring and skill development.  The Robert Anderson First Seminar Instructor of the Year award will be given annually to an instructor who meaningfully blends all of these components to create an intellectually engaging and supportive experience for first-year students with sustained contributions to the program. Additionally, the Outstanding First Seminar Program Course Award will be given annually to an instructor whose course stood out in the previous semester as an excellent example of excellence in FSP teaching.

Faculty Development

The First Seminar Program provides support for instructors teaching and preparing FSP courses by creating resources and offering developmental opportunities.
