Dr. Ken Spring, associate professor of sociology, recently presented a paper at the Annual First Year Experience Conference in Orlando, Florida. The paper was titled “A Civic Approach: Community, Education, and Responsibility”

Spring specifically addressed the ways in which FYS has been used as a way of framing the Belmont experience and welcoming students into the culture of our campus. On a 5.0 scale, Spring’s session received a 4.9 for the overall quality of the presentation from the attendees.
