“Foundations of Excellence¬ģ in the First College Year is a year-long, comprehensive guided self-study and improvement process for the first year of college. It engages participants in debate, research, analysis, and improvement planning. The process focuses on the institution – its policies, practices, and programs – rather than on the characteristics of entering students or student-level outcomes. ”
