The Fall 2020 LLC Integration Series

Throughout the fall semester, you will be required to attend at least ONE Integration Series event for your LLC theme. Please check with your LLC Faculty Advisor to see if they are requiring you to attend more than one Integration Series event for your Fall LLC Course. During these Integration Series Events, you will see integration in action and you will have the opportunity to engage faculty from different disciplines within your LLC theme as they come together to discuss how their disciples engage with a common topic. These events are hosted during your LLC Hour time.

Please note: Attendance at one integration series event, participation in the Fall Practicing First-Year Integration assignment and the Spring First Year Integration Project, and completion of your Fall and Spring LLC courses fulfill the First-Year Integration Core requirement.
