First Year Experience (FYE) Teaching Resources for Faculty

First Year Experience (FYE) Teaching Resources for Faculty

How can we contribute to student success–success not only academic, but also emotional and social–during their time at BMCC? Students’ first year experience is especially important in developing and nourishing their sense of purpose and belonging, their love of learning, access to services and resources, as well as students’ exploration of career paths and citizenship. This is the goal of FYE-embedded courses, and here is a resource site with relevant materials for faculty. We welcome contributions.
