For members of Strong College, the city of Greensboro will be the classroom. They’ll take what they learn in their classes out into the city to complete various kinds of research projects. To help students complete these projects, Strong College core courses will focus on sustainable communities in a variety of contexts including cultural, historical, political, and economic. For us, sustainability does not just refer to the environment, but to all aspects of human engagement with each other and with the world around us.
Students in this closely knit community will take at least two core courses focused on sustainable communities during their four semesters in the program and will also have the option of taking General Education courses open only to Residential College students. In the fourth semester, students will complete independent capstone projects structured around the concept of sustainable communities. During the two years of the program, students will develop their leadership skills through participation in Strong College committees and will live in Guilford Residence Hall.
