IHE 101
Freshman Introduction to Higher Education



The Freshmen IHE course focuses on the complexities of human decision-making and the importance of thinking clearly and effectively in order to lead a fulfilling, well-examined life. Students will become more aware of the decisions they make throughout their lives; the impact and influence of various social, cultural, and environmental factors on those decisions; and the impact of their
decisions on their physical, social and cultural environments.

Academic and information literacy skills will be stressed, along with information on navigating the University, planning an academic program (GE and Major), and student success skills.

This course incorporates skills for lifelong learning along with information, activities, and content generally taught in the freshmen IHE course. Therefore, this proposed course fulfills both Block E and the Freshmen IHE requirement.
