Social Innovation Immersion
The Social Innovation Immersion program is designed to inspire students to explore the complex societal problems through a social justice framework. Through the Social Innovation theme community, residents will work in teams throughout the school year to develop a solution to a problem that is more effective, efficient, just, or sustainable than current solutions. Residents will also be provided with guidance and mentorship on how to start putting solutions into real world action. To learn more an apply, please visit here.

The Interdisciplinary Exploration and Scholarship
The Interdisciplinary Exploration and Scholarship (IDEAS) Floor is a new community within that focuses on cultivating intellectual engagement through both peers and through campus resources. Students in the community will expand their educational experience beyond the classroom- from field trips to Atlanta to engaging conversations across and among the liberal arts. The students will be able to shape their IDEAS Floor experience by providing suggestions for programs and field trips. The IDEAS Floor is looking for students with all academic interests (pre-health, pre-business, liberal arts, etc.). To learn more and apply, please visit here.
