International Relations Learning Community

    Students are housed together in a residence hall and have opportunities to define international relations in their living space and learn together in a shared course experience, PSC 124 International Relations. Within this course and Learning Community activities, students develop their skills and appreciation for international affairs in a number of sponsored activities with other units on campus, projects and field seminars. 

    The International Relations Learning Community also provides a leadership opportunity for IRLC alumni to serve as the Peer Mentor.  IRLC Peer Mentor duties include working with Dr. D’Amico in PSC 124 International Relations to provide academic support for students on assignments and in preparation for quizzes/exams, to help develop an engaging lesson plan for weekly class discussion sessions, and to help prepare for and participate in field seminars and related events. The IRLC Peer Mentor coordinates with resident advisors assigned to the IRLC by the Office of Residence Life and earns a stipend as well as 1-academic experience credit for the teaching practicum. 

    Previous Peer Mentors have included:

    Abigail Neuviller, 2016-2017
    Satoshi Sugyiama, 2015-2016
    Cullen Stubbs, 2014-2015
    Saraounia Mboka-Boyer, 2013-2014
