"Student’s should join the learning community to help learn the resources available to them and help build connections with other transfer students in their major.” -Janessa Boley
Majors Eligible to Join
New Chemical Engineering transfer students are eligible to join.
The Chemical Engineering academic learning community has been developed to create a sense of connection between transfer students in the department. Through this learning community experience, students will explore their major and career goals while also gaining exposure to the various areas of industry and research that are available to them upon graduation. Focus will also be placed on developing awareness of resources, integration into Iowa State’s campus, and opportunities for growth and advancement through discussions and activities throughout the learning community seminar. Campus exploration will also occur through a variety of experiences including a semester-long group project, interaction with faculty members in the department, and advice from peer mentors who were transfer students themselves.
In addition, members of the academic learning community will create a culture of connection and collaboration through clustered coursework.
Students will have an opportunity to register for this learning community during Orientation.
