The goal of this housing option is to engage a community of TCNJ degree seeking students and exchange students in a variety of leadership and learning opportunities, including field trips, special events and house discussions that will help individuals learn more about other cultures as well as their own.
Participants will develop a greater understanding of American culture and history, including that of New Jersey, by participating in trips, discussions and other educational opportunities on campus and in the mid-Atlantic region. Students will learn cross-cultural communication skills, recognize their own cultural norms and values and take steps to bridge the communication gap that sometimes exist between different cultures. Students are expected to be engaged and active participants who willingly participate in and even create educational opportunities for the community. This includes attending community events, volunteering, field trips, house meetings, and developing programs and events for the greater campus community. In addition, all students living in the I-House will register for a pass/fail course, IDS 110-01.
This community is a collaboration between The Department of Residential Education & Housing and The Center for Global Engagement.
