Proposals for the Inquiry 1000 course are due Friday, Nov. 15.

INQR 1000 is a one-hour core course that engages students with topics of interest and emphasizes the importance of asking questions in the process of learning. This course primarily consists of freshman and sophomore students.

Faculty from all disciplines are encouraged to submit a proposal.

There are two options for teaching the course:

Option A: Designing Your Life

A semi-structured curriculum designed to encourage students to move beyond a job title and work toward uncovering their purpose.

Option B: Discipline-based

A topic-driven seminar that uses active learning strategies to emphasize the process of learning and asking questions in the process of learning.

Contact Dr. Elizabeth Huggins, director of first- and second-year experience, with questions.
