First Year U 2017 Participant Application
First Year U (FYU) is a leadership program held during the fall semester for first-year students. Designed to provide students an opportunity to learn about leadership in non-traditional ways, FYU creates connections with other students and UM faculty while exploring the Miami community. The program is a mix of large group discussions on current topics and smaller cohort-based experiences in the residential areas. Sessions explore topics related to public health, civic engagement, environmental sustainability, and race and ethnicity. The discussions are complimented with off-campus team building experiences and community trips. All these activities are directed toward the common goal of responsible citizenship that capitalizes on translating lessons learned in the classroom to changemaking outside of it. Applications to participate in First Year U in the Fall of 2017 are due to the Butler Center for Service and Leadership(SC 204) by 5 pm on Friday, September 1st. Download the application today!
