Steve Sartori Two students share smiles during a sunny day on campus. The Laura Hanhausen Milton Freshman Lecture, College of Arts and Sciences
This program, established in 1997, brings nationally prominent scholars, thinkers, and artists to campus to address all first-year arts and sciences students. Speakers to date include Cornel West, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Stephen Jay Gould, and Elie Wiesel. Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison presented the 2001 lecture. Formerly known as the Freshman Lecture, it was renamed through a generous gift from Laura ’51 and Jack Milton ’51. The lecture is the culmination of the Freshman Forum, with classes reading and discussing the speaker’s works prior to his or her campus visit.

Enhancements to the Advising Process, College of Arts and Sciences
The Summer Faculty Advising Program allows incoming freshmen to learn about SU from advisors via telephone and printed material. In many cases, students’ Freshman Forum leaders become their faculty advisors. The Exploratory Student Program assigns academic counselors to students who have yet to declare a major.

The Undergraduate Teaching Initiative, Maxwell School
Funded by a $4 million grant in 1992, this initiative focused on the improvement of teaching and learning. Three new team-taught introductory courses were developed, and have enrolled more than 5,000 undergraduates and involved more than 75 faculty members to date. The grant also supported more than 300 graduate students preparing for careers as teachers and more than 1,500 undergraduates in service learning opportunities.
