In partnership with Campus Housing, we are offering a section of HON 201 (Honors Seminar) on Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 8:00 in JST! This course is titled “Engaging Ideas to Build Leaders and Scholars” and features the Faculty in Residence talking about their research or creative scholarship, from chemistry to criminal justice, family medicine to pharmacy practice. It’s a wonderful chance to get to know more about the great faculty that live and work in the residence halls: from their specialties, to their hobbies, to ways to be more comfortable talking to faculty in general.
If this sounds like a great idea, add HON 201 – CRN 21199 to your schedule. This is a one-credit hour course, graded satisfactory/unsatisfactory. But hurry! The deadline to change your schedule is September 2nd!
(Note – this course is not limited to students who live on-campus! All Honors College students are eligible to take this course – commuters, too!)
Here is the full course description:

21199 7:00 - 7:50 R N. Ardinger
This seminar brings the divergent expertise of campus housing Faculty in Residence (FIRs) to Honors College students. Faculty in Residence help realize a living-learning community by their presence at various sites in campus housing. This seminar will showcase select FIRs' research/creative scholarship and inter-professional collaborative education and practice, including chemistry, criminal justice, financial literacy, managerial studies, music, family medicine, and pharmacy practice, among others. Each FIR will engage students on issues of concern in specific areas of study and domains of work, emphasizing both theory and practice. Students will have opportunities to explore the range of scholarship/inter-professional education UIC has to offer, undergirded by a common core of eagerness to understand the experienced world.
