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.
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.
