College 1 was intentionally created as an interdisciplinary course housed in the Counseling Division that can be taught by any adjunct or full-time faculty member or PCC manager with a Master’s Degree. All College 1 instructors attend the College 1 Institute in preparation for teaching the class and can join a mentor group to support their teaching during the semester.
