Photography, University & You
This Residential Learning Community brings together students living in Hashinger Residence Hall, who have an interest in taking a specially designed section of UNIV 101.
Photography, University & You is a Learning Community focused on thinking about photography’s role in society and the way in which photographs allow us to negotiate our relationship with the world and people around us, as well as helping students to develop visual literacy skills. Field trips, visitors, projects, and discussions help students understand how and where they can learn about and become involved with photography on and off campus. Using critical and intersecting lenses, course readings and assignments challenge students to think about the varied roles that photography and image-making plays in our lives.
Ellen Cordero Raimond, First-Year Experience
The two-credit-hour UNIV 101 or Orientation Seminar course associated with this Learning Community is small, enrolling about 19 students. In addition to addressing issues concerning photography, students develop capacities and have learning experiences that will transfer to a variety of campus and life contexts. By becoming a part of the Photography, University & You community, you will come to know campus better, will more fully understand your individual and team strengths, will practice and develop critical thinking skills, will learn about information literacy and research, and will gain memorable experiences.
Meg Kumin will be teaching the UNIV 101 course for the Photography, University & You residential learning community.
