Food for Thought: Crossing Disciplinary and Campus Borders with Integrated Pedagogy

Betsy L. F. Hall


Like many academics, I have multiple roles on my campus. In addition to being an English professor who specializes in first-year composition, I am also the academic director of the Illinois College Connections (ICC) First-Year Experience program. ICC is an integrated program that includes a discipline specific first-year seminar; a common convocation program connected to an annual theme; a summer reading and writing program centered on a common text; a dinner for all first-year students at the President’s home on campus; Success Strategy Sessions on time management, wellness, writing, information literacy, and careers/graduate school; and a day of community service. As faculty and administrator, I serve dual spaces on my campus.
