Transfer LEAP is a one semester class designed to help integrate transfer students into the University of Utah, while fulfilling the University’s International (IR) requirement.
Transfer LEAP asks such questions as:
- What is “race”?
- How has race been defined historically? How has this definition become institutionalized?
- What is “eugenics”?
- What’s the connection between race and class?
- What is “structural violence”?
- How are colonization, modernity and globalization related?
- In any area where there are layers of identity, is more significance given to the earliest or the latest identity?
- How does a rigid definition of community like apartheid or caste affect society in general?
- Can the goals of general society be reached by separation, or will one group
inevitably be favored over the others?
- How is diversity dealt with in countries such as India,
Australia, Rwanda and South Africa.
Transfer LEAP students have access to:
- Help transitioning to the U
- Peer Advisor in the class
- A University library research introduction
- Classroom visit from a Career Services representative
- Introduction to Campus resources
