Foundational Course Initiative (FCI)

The Foundational Course Initiative (FCI) is housed within the Center for Teaching & Assessment of Learning (CTAL) at the University of Delaware and exists to support faculty that teach foundational courses primarily taken by recently-admitted and/or conditionally-admitted students. Additional information is available on this initiative as a whole, as well as each of its individual component programs: Spark, STRIDE, and a recurring Professional Learning Community.
