Effective First Year Experience (FYE) programs can impact everything from retention, to GPA levels, to graduation rates, and employability. As more colleges and universities invest in these initiatives, librarians are being tasked with finding innovative ways to engage incoming students and cultivate essential academic and research skills.

In order to best support librarians navigating this quickly growing space, we’ve put together an interactive guide for libraries involved with the FYE. Whether you’re building your FYE strategy from the ground up, or looking to improve upon existing programs, you’ll find valuable information to put into practice at your institution.

The Credo FYE Guide will provide overviews of current trends, tips & best practices, case studies, and so much more. Subjects covered include:

  • Orientation
  • Collaboration
  • Assessment 
  • Information Literacy
  • Student Engagement
