Opportunities for first year students to develop critical thinking skills are essential, however, freshmen are often overwhelmed with adjustment to college, and therefore unable to accommodate this skill. Inquiry 1000, a new one credit hour discussion-based course in Area B, is designed to engage second term freshmen or first term sophomores in the discovery, exploration, and analysis of ideas that faculty members, across a variety of disciplines, study and investigate. All INQR 1000 students participate in the INQR EXPO--an academic festival showcasing student work via posters, photos and videos-- scaffolding the research process they might demonstrate their junior or senior years.
