Each year First-Year Programs hires over 80 faculty members and 50 undergraduates to work with incoming freshmen.
The FIG Program is offered in the fall only, and both faculty and undergraduates are employed. Due to the complexity of this program, proposals for FIGs are solicited from faculty during winter term for the proceeding fall. Proposals are always due on the last business day of January. Undergraduates are hired as FIG Assistants at the end of winter term for the upcoming fall.
