Teaching Resources

Arts Intensive is committed to supporting an intensive learning experience for students and an exceptional teaching experience for faculty.

  • Instructors select two undergraduate or graduate students to serve as Arts Intensive Program Assistants (AIPAs) to provide teaching and program support. AIPAs live in program housing with their students, hold office hours in the dorm, and provide other out-of-class leadership.
  • Course supplies and enhancement funding are provided for guest speakers, field trips, and presentation of the students’ course projects.
  • Curriculum development assistance is funded for faculty to hire a student in the spring or summer.
  • September Studies staff provide support for all course administration, including ordering books, arranging classrooms, and setting up field trips.
