If you have colleagues who may be interested, please forward this information to them. Instructors are required to have a desire to impact the lives of new students and adequate time in their schedules to devote to the program. Time considerations include, but are not limited to: class (one hour per week), class preparation & meetings with Peer Leader, training sessions, and out-of-class activities.

Instructors will be paired with an undergraduate Peer Leader (selection for the Peer Leaders is well underway) and provided with a sample syllabus and on-line resources to personalize their class.

Although instructors cannot be paid, those who teach will be compensated with a $500 professional development allowance from the Office of the Provost.
