First-Year Students

Helping First-Year Students Help Themselves: From the Chronicle of Higher Education.

Links Between Faculty Goals and Pedagogy and First-Year Student Engagement and
Well-Being
: Lawrence University professor Cathy Crosby-Currie (Psychology) and Director of Institutional Research Christine Zimmerman present the findings of a project funded by the Bringing Theory to Practice Project (a program of the AAC&U). Their conclusion: first-year seminar faculty ” learning goals were connected to students’ engagement and civic development. Specifically, we found that a greater emphasis by FYP and FYS faculty on an appreciation of positionality or understanding different ways of knowing related to students’ social justice attitudes at the end of their first year. Similarly,
more emphasis on developing civic awareness was significantly related to students’ greater political awareness, and more emphasis on the application of subject matter knowledge was significantly related to students’ engaging in more integration and application of their coursework.”
