Information for First Year Instructors

This section is posted by the Office of Undergraduate Advising and Academic Programming (UAAP) to provide curricular support to the Freshman Science Core and instructors of other subjects with heavy freshman enrollment.

We hope these pages will facilitate better communication among the First Year Instructors by providing a centralized place where you can find important information related to the first year curriculum. Here, you'll find links to information about the current term's first-year instructors and subjects, quiz dates for freshman subjects, dates of upcoming learning strategies events and workshops, and other timely information, including meetings with the Dean for Undergraduate Education.

We are currently hosting this section within our website for Freshman Advisors, as you might be interested to look through the information and advice we provide to both freshman advisors and the Class of 2020.

The UAAP contact person for curricular support is Elizabeth Young, Associate Dean, Advising and New Student Programming,, (617) 253-6786. She looks forward to hearing from you if you have questions, comments, or suggestions on how we might better provide advice to freshmen and advisors.
