Commons Seminars

What is a Commons Seminar?

Commons Seminars are intended to prepare first-year students to pursue their passions by modeling rigorous, compelling, and unique projects in addition to exposing students to a particular seminar theme. Commons Seminar topics help students imagine ways to make a difference in the world by introducing them early on to the questions of why, how, and where having an immersive experience might make a difference in their undergraduate careers.
