The Residential College (RC) is a four-year liberal arts program uniting the virtues of a small college with the resources of a large research university. Founded in 1967 by the University of Michigan College of Literature, Science and the Arts (LSA), It was designed to be experimental – not only in curriculum, but in different kinds of pedagogy, different approaches to grading and assessment, and distinctive residential arrangements that combine living with learning. Nearly fifty years later, long after similar initiatives elsewhere have failed, the RC remains a vibrant academic community on the University of Michigan campus.
