First Year Council

The First Year Council (FYC) was established to build leadership skills for a nominated pool of first-year students within the Honors College. The nomination process takes place within the first few weeks of the fall semester.

First Year Council leaders attend bi-weekly workshops that assist them in their transition to the new college environment. These workshops are intentionally designed to assist FYC leaders to successfully navigate the academic, personal, social, and professional aspects of their college lives. Depending on the need of the FYC cohort, several faculty and non-faculty guest speakers are invited to share their knowledge and experience around holistic themes such as leadership development, career advancement, research opportunities, diversity and inclusion, and service learning, among others.
