How We Work

The work of the ICA program is grounded in five Engaged Learning Opportunities (ELOs).

Focused Outreach

ICAs engage in visitations and interpersonal relationship building throughout the residence halls, alongside other staff members.

MRULE Round Table Discussions (RTDs)

Every week, ICAs facilitate open, frank round table discussions about social issues with students from the residence halls and beyond.  To learn more about RTDs, click here.

CSCs – Civic, Social, Cultural

Every week, ICAs host civil, social, and cultural engagement opportunities for students in the residence halls.  These include service projects with sustainable partner sites.  To learn more about CSCs, click here.

Training and Education Engaged Learning Opportunities (TEELOs)

ICAs and advisors gather to reflect on the events hosted by staff members in previous weeks and engage in academic material together.

Engagement with Campus Partners

ICAs continually build relationships with Residence Education staff and other student communities.  These campus partners include the Neighborhoods, the Office of Cultural and Academic Transitions, and the LBGT Resource Center.
