Since 1999, UConn's FYE program has offered courses and services that foster student success, development, transition, and leadership. Through our course offerings, first and second year students at the University study and engage in exploration, learning, and research in small 19 seat seminar sections.
FYE course offerings are taught by instructors drawn from departments and colleges throughout the university system who are assisted by undergraduate peer mentors and graduate leaders, allowing our courses to become collaborative, community-based offerings for active and experiential learning.

Dr. Robert E. Meditz will present "The Dialectic of the Holy: Paul Tillich's Idea of Judaism within the History of Religion" for the Center for Judaic Studies Faculty Colloquium Series.
When renowned philosopher and theologian Paul Tillich came into conflict with the Nazi regime, he emigrated to the United States, eventually receiving an appointment at Harvard Divinity School. Tillich was an outspoken critic of anti-Semitism both before and after the Holocaust.
Dr. Meditz will discuss his recently published work and examine the way Paul Tillich's positive theology of Judaism contrasted sharply with the many complex, negative ways in which Judaism was portrayed in Western thought.
