Propose a New Living-Learning Program

Faculty members from across all five academic schools may submit a proposal to the Sophomore Scholars in Residence or The Richmond Endeavor programs. These programs provide unique opportunities for faculty who value close student interaction and desire the opportunity to dig deeper into a topic with a group of interested students. Students in both programs live together and are engaged in a full-year of curricular and co-curricular learning.

Faculty Proposals for The Richmond Endeavor

Faculty proposals are currently being accepted for the new Richmond Endeavor program for the 2018–19 academic year. Faculty who participate agree to serve as the academic advisor to the sixteen students in their community from summer pre-matriculation until the students declares a major; participate in the Roadmap to Success pre-orientation program; teach a fall one-unit course in the fall semester; and lead a .5 unit project-based course in the spring semester.

Interested faculty are encouraged to discuss their proposal with Scott Johnson, Ph.D., associate provost for student academic initiatives, or Andrew Gurka, director of living-learning. The proposal deadline is December 3, 2017.

Faculty Proposals for Sophomore Scholars in Residence

Faculty proposals are currently being accepted for Sophomore Scholars in Residence for the 2019–20 academic year. Faculty who agree to participate teach their one-unit course in the fall, oversee a half-unit collaborative group project in the spring, and lead their communities in travel and other outside-class experiences (with ample logistical support).

Interested faculty are encouraged to discuss their proposal with Scott Johnson, Ph.D., associate provost for student academic initiatives, or Andrew Gurka, director of living-learning. The proposal deadline is December 3, 2017.

Proposing Themed Communities 

Students or faculty interested in developing a themed community, should contact Andrew Gurka, director of living-learning.
