CSP 101 is designed to introduce students to the Comprehensive Studies Program learning community. It provides a space where students can reflect on their values and goals, explore the many resources CSP and U-M have to offer, learn about CSP’s commitment to inclusivity, accessibility, and anti-racism, strengthen college-success skills, and have open discussions about navigating the University of Michigan as a first-year or transfer student.

Discussions, writing assignments, readings, and other coursework will focus on three broad areas. In this course, we will (1) explore strategies, resources, and skills that you can use to find happiness and fulfillment here at U-M; (2) discuss higher education in America and learn about CSP's roots in anti-racist struggle; and (3) identify your own strengths and motivations in order to productively explore ways to create an experience at U-M that will help you live out your values and fulfill your academic, social, and professional aims.

Course Requirements:

This is a required course for all first-term Comprehensive Studies Students who did not attend the Summer Bridge Scholars Program.

Intended Audience:
