News for Students


Starting with Block II of this semester, taking any three of the four ICIC mini-courses—ICIC 10000 Integration, ICIC 12000 Insight, ICIC 13000 Creativity, and ICIC 14000 Character—will satisfy the Humanities or Social Sciences perspective designations in any ICC theme. Previously, they satisfied these perspective designations in only Inquiry, Imagination and Innovation (III) and World of Systems.


Note that if your theme is not III or World of Systems, no course taken prior to Block II of this semester can be counted in this way. For example, if you have taken one of the mini-courses, and you now take two more, the three will not satisfy the ICC perspective requirement because the first course will not count.

Applications are due at 5:00pm on Friday, September 30 for the 15th annual Cross-Cultural Leadership Retreat, so be sure to complete your form today!
