Biographical or Historical Information

Ione Grogan Residential College was founded in 1997 with support from the Office of the Provost. It is named after Ione Holt Grogan (1892-1961), who was a Mathematics Professor and Residence Hall Counsel when UNCG was Woman's College. Ione Grogan is renowned for her excellent teaching and passionate dedication to students' holistic growth and success. Grogan Residential College continues the legacy of Dr. Grogan.

In the early years, Grogan Residential College was only for first-year students and it was comprised of individual "learning communities", each of which focused on a specific type of career, major, or interest area, usually in the professions or performing arts. First-year students in each community took several classes together in their major and were mentored by a member of the UNCG faculty (the Faculty Fellow) and an upper-classmen Peer Academic Leader (PAL) who lived on the hall. The Faculty Fellow and the PAL met with the students weekly in a one credit seminar (GRC 101). The purpose was to help the students navigate college life, develop foundational academic and leadership skills, explore a chosen profession and/or major, and provide general assistance and encouragement. Many of Grogan's signature and very popular community traditions were established in these early years such as the annual Night of the Arts celebration, Masquerade Ball and the award winning Grogan-at-a-Glance year in review.

Today, Grogan College continues to support students' holistic academic, social, career and personal success. It continues to be a home for students interested in the professions and performing arts. In addition, Grogan College currently enrolls many more sophomore students and offers courses and program specifically designed for upper class students such as the second year capstone course and portfolio project. Also, beginning in 2014-15 Grogan Residential College introduced a unique curriculum of CORE courses designed to help students develop important competencies required of successful professionals.
