First-year programs: 1-4-1-4 academic calendar,””Into the Streets,”” and the Leadership Development Practicum

March 24, 2015

Our educational model for our first-year students is unique. Our Autumn (August) Term, resulting in a 1-4-1-4 academic calendar for first-year students, provides our students a more personalized academic experience to help them make the transition to our College. Autumn Term culminates with “”Into the Streets,”” an organized program of community service projects. During Winter Term, many of our first-year students enroll in a Leadership Development Practicum based on the highly successful management development models used in executive training programs, while many others enroll in a Service-Learning Practicum. These courses engage students in service programs in the local community so the students may apply their knowledge and bring back new knowledge into the classroom.
