HU 110: Introducing the Pathway to Empowerment (P2E)
All incoming first-year students will enroll in the HU 110: Introducing the Pathway to Empowerment course as a way of officially transitioning into the LEC community. This one-credit hour course meets every Wednesday throughout the fall from 3:30 - 4:20 p.m. and involves both common experiences as well as small group classroom discussions.
This course covers each of the four elements: Self-Discovery, Developing Strong Personal Attributes, Creative Problem Solving, and Balancing Personal and Professional Goals with the Needs of Others, and is designed to set students on the right path and inspire them to reach their full potential.
What to expect in the HU 110 course:
An introduction to the four phases of the Pathway to Empowerment
Opportunities for students to work alongside peers and instructors in small group settings
An understanding of the resources and tools available to help students succeed both academically and personally
A platform for students to explore their interests, make connections, and take action in ways that positively impact their community
HU 110 Fall Semester Feedback
Exploring the Future
"I really enjoyed this course! It really helped me prepare for life outside of school and future endeavors I want to explore! "
"I feel like the HU 110 class really helped me grow as a person, I had not done much community service before this class and while hanging out cards and singing a little bit it made me feel like I was making an impact and felt very good."
Preparing to Make an Impact
"Great way to prepare students for community involvement and ways to be impactful as a student and citizen."
