University College also supports the Women's and Gender Studies program and minor, the environmental studies minor and the sustainability certificate.

For first-year students, this will be an exciting and demanding time. You will be expected to think for yourself, make some big decisions and ask some tough questions. Here is how we will support you:

  • Professional academic advising and peer mentoring;
  • UNIV 110 for undeclared/exploring students, a course designed to develop critical thinking and research skills, provide community support during the first semester of enrollment and acquaint you with available resources; and
  • Academic support through our Tutoring and Learning Center.
