People who love teaching first-year students
We have an amazing team of instructors who are passionate about teaching first-year students at Berkeley. Our instructors are dedicated, accessible and knowledgeable, and many of them have taught or currently teach on the main campus. Coming from a wide range of disciplines, they help students make interdisciplinary connections in the classroom. They also work closely with the FPF advisors to provide students with a holistic and high-impact learning experience.
FPF instructors hold regular office hours and teach their own discussion sections to maximize their ability to build relationships with their students. Year after year, our students have expressed that their instructors are one of the highlights of their first semester at Berkeley. A few are highlighted below.
"You will love this program! It is very nurturing to the students, and as a result, our students tend to do better in their university careers than students who never had the advantage of our program"
