Q Class

Q Class

This peer-taught class introduces you to the Collins, IU, and Bloomington communities. Active assignments and field trips immerse you in the community, diversity, sustainability, philanthropy, and arts and humanities at Collins. The course culminates in a Q Project, where residents contribute to the community through the active interpretation of one (or more) of Collins’ key values.
