The First Year Instructors page 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 this site 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 linking this page from the information for Freshman Advisors. You might be interested to look through the information and advice we provide to freshman advisors and to the Class of 2016.
The UAAP contact person for curricular support is Donna Friedman, Associate Dean, Freshman Advising and Academic Services, firstname.lastname@example.org, x3-9762. 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.

In collaboration with the Schedules Office, the UAAP coordinates and disseminates the Fall and Spring quiz dates to instructors, students, and freshman advisors.
Coordination is important to minimize multiple quizzes scheduled on the same day and to better facilitate room scheduling. Click here for the schedule of Spring 2013 quizzes.
