Books

For UNV 101, we ask faculty to adopt Cornerstones for College Success, by Robert Sherfield and Patricia Moody. This book is motivational and also stresses the importance of having a focus and maintaining self-discipline within an academic setting.

FACULTY RESOURCE MANUAL AND DOWNLOADS

Through our online learning system Canvas, we have a UNV 101 Instructors site that includes a resource manual, many successful assignments and key contacts across campus. UNV 101 faculty are given access to these resources once a section of the course is assigned to them.
