The Freshman Innovation Group is a CLA-specific program that provides incoming, first-generation freshmen a learning community involving a small network of faculty, advisors, and administrators in partnership with students. This program links two, seminar-sized courses that allows sets of 25 students to move together as a cohort through their first year.  Along with funding provided for course materials, meals with faculty, and academic programming that engages student interests and experiences, FIG students participate in opportunities that build a strong foundation for their academic and social success.
