Teach an IU-accredited course at Collins

  • Is there a course you've always wanted to teach, but never had the opportunity?
  • Have you designed a multidisciplinary course that doesn't quite fit into your department's curriculum? 

The Collins Living-Learning Center invites faculty members and advanced graduate students with teaching experience to submit course proposals each semester for the following year. 

For those who have taught at Collins before and would like to teach again: there is a staffing policy with regards to Associate Instructors who offer courses for the LLCs. There will be a limit of 2 courses total that an individual AI may be hired to teach by a College-affiliated LLC. Please note that you cannot be approved to teach a second course until after course evaluations have been reviewed for your first course. Ordinarily, this will mean that a second course will not be sooner than 3 semesters after the first one.

Freshmen and sophomores are required to register for one Collins seminar per year.  Proposals at the 200 level are sought particularly, but not exclusively.

Email the Board of Educational Programming co-chairs directly at and to request a personal consultation with student members. Include the following in your email:

  • Your name
  • Your email address
  • Your phone number
  • Your address (preferably campus address)
  • The proposed topic for your course
  • When it would be convenient for you to schedule a consultation. Please include evening and weekend times if possible; we'll do our best to find students who are free when you are.
