  • Build anchoring connections with your peers and a faculty expert within your theme in the College of Science and Engineering.
  • Take a first-year course with other Fellows related to your chosen theme and complete at least one co-curricular project, activity or event.
  • Develop a deeper understanding of an interdisciplinary problem, question or theme while gaining individual support for your career exploration and development.
  • Help shape this new program for future students.
