ED 20 Co-Leader Application | Spring 2019
Introduction to the Research University
Education (ED) 20 is the Freshmen Success Course designed to assist first-year students in becoming successful members of our university community. The course introduces students to the role of higher education in society and their role within our community of scholars. Topics cover academic, social, and personal issues that are relevant to college students; students are encouraged to become active participants in making their experience what they want it to be. Co-leaders facilitate a discussion section along with a discussion leader. They are mentors, teachers and role models to freshmen. Upon satisfactory completion of course requirements, co-leaders may receive 4.0 units of credit through Education 120 and will be awarded a certificate of completion.
