Lecture6525-40YesWe are hoping for two sections. One for Orientation Leaders and the other for Summer Start Peer Mentors.

None.
Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
For New Student Programs Student Leaders only. Relevant research, student development theory, and shared professional experiences are presented. This course will offer learning opportunities that will provide class members with knowledge, attitude, and skills necessary to become effective NSP Student Leaders. Class discussion, small groups activities, simulations, and writing employed. Individual projects and out-of-class team building experiences are required, including Saturday activities. Departmental Approval Required.

New Student Programs inherited the Summer Start program and now has two different student leader positions in its office. The Summer Start Peer Mentors were previously required to attend the USC 298 class but we would like to create two sections of the USC 223 course. In doing so, we have refined some of the learning outcomes. Overall, most of the class we hope will be together to ensure that both positions are adequately training.
