MtA launches THRIVE program to support first-year students


Mount Allison University is launching the THRIVE program to support incoming first-year students. THRIVE—Transformation in Higher Education with Radical Inclusion, Values, and Engagement—includes a foundational course called Wicked Problems that addresses community challenges such as poverty and food insecurity, teaches students key skills for success in their postsecondary studies, and introduces them to experiential learning. “[Students] will be making links to the community, their fellow students, and faculty — and these networks will serve them well as they grow and thrive throughout their degree and after they graduate,” said MtA Director of Experiential Learning & Career Development Rebecca Leaman.
