Applied Learning and Development

The teaching profession offers a variety of opportunities and demands high levels of personal and professional skill. Being a successful teacher or educator involves the ability to work effectively with people, possession of a sense of service to others, academic competence, and professional commitment. Students participating in a FIG will have an opportunity to develop these skills. Each FIG cluster offers required classes that fulfill degree requirements. Additionally, the FIG Facilitator and Peer Mentor will help participants create a strong connection to the University, Faculty, and Staff.

For more details about joining one of our FIGs, talk to an Advisor during orientation, call our Advising Office at 512-471-3223, or visit the FIG Website.
