Learning Communities

 

Learn Together

Enhancing learning, fostering connections, and integrating academic experiences 

By placing students and instructors within in a selection of intentionally grouped courses based on similar and shared interests, Learning Communities foster integrated learning environments that can provide significant impact on learning outcomes. 

Students establish a strong support network, develop friendships, and experience learning as a dynamic exchange of ideas and perspectives. Participants are encouraged to discover and appreciate relationships of disciplines and knowledge, as they develop a strong sense of place within the larger university community. Learning Communities implement the Student Sense of Place and Integration of Knowledge Fundamental Principles.

Objectives

  • Encourage integrated and interdisciplinary teaching and learning designs, allowing connections through a holistic approach.
  • Offer a framework through which to participate in service learning, civic engagement, and co-curricular opportunities.
  • Empower a successful transition into college life by creating strong connections to the new college environment.
