Special Academic Opportunity from Shimer College for IIT Staff and Faculty

Many IIT staff and faculty have expressed interest in learning more about Shimer College’s dialogue-based educational style. Shimer is pleased to offer two opportunities this fall semester during the Weekend program (which meets seven times during the fall) for IIT staff/faculty to experience it first-hand.

IIT staff may register for a free interdisciplinary course titled “Relationships.” The course meets from 11:20 am – 12:35 pm on applicable Sundays, and is limited to the first twelve IIT and/or VanderCook staff who register. Detailed information including how to register for the course is available here.

IIT staff and faculty are invited to take one of the Shimer introductory courses in humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences at a greatly reduced cost of $1,000, which includes tuition, books, and lunch. Detailed information including how to register is available here.
