-CREW courses are built around community, relationships, environment and wellness.
-FACE explores film, arts, creative expression and engineering.
-GEM focuses on studies in global infrastructure, entrepreneurship and modern communication.
-ALLPS, which is the Agee-Lierly Life Preparation Services Center and offers programs and services for nontraditional students.
