In the first-semester course, LIFT students will:

  • Identify library resources and campus services to support their curricular and co-curricular lives.
  • Practice and engage with ideas of ethical behavior while finding, using and sharing information.
  • Read, evaluate and interpret media coverage of trending issues and current events, including those that affect first-generation college students.
  • Develop community through intentional dialogue with a group of peers from similar and diverse backgrounds.

The LIFT second-semester course and the all-expenses-paid Immersive Term goals expand on the first-semester course.
