The First Year Engagement Committee

seeks to support first year English students as they transition to university. We also work with the Academic Outreach Committee to help new and undeclared students explore their academic options within the English department. 

Goals: 

  • Help incoming English students feel welcome through specific programming for new and transfer students

  • Help new and undeclared students explore their options within English by keeping them informed about English programs and directing them to appropriate resources

  • Advocate for student well-being, especially students newly transitioning to university and facing additional stresses due to COVID-19

  • Provide opportunities for new students to get involved with the English Student Union and English Department

Membership: The First Year Engagement Committee aims for a 3–5 person membership.
