Success of Linked Courses being evaluated

This was the first semester that linked courses were brought to the University, but this won’t be the last.

Linked courses is a University initiative to try to improve freshmen’s connections with the campus community and their peers, said Susan Kleine, associate vice provost for Undergraduate Education.

The University is currently gathering data through surveys from professors and students based off of what they thought.

“Anecdotally, we’ve heard students say it is a good thing and students are recognizing one another,” Kleine said.

Next fall the University will be working on more linked courses with departments based off of the feedback.

“We want to do this effectively, but we won’t know much until we see the data,” Kleine said.
