What is a Learning Community?
Learning communities are an opportunity for sophomores to engage in a truly interactive learning experience on a pressing social issue with a small group of 35 sophomores.
Members of the learning community will take a common set of three linked courses that all relate in some way to the theme of the community. In addition (for one credit), students will engage together and with their learning community instructors in activities such as out of class coffee-shop discussions, campus programs or activities, field trips, and service learning projects, and will complete together an integrative hands-on project that utilizes their learning experiences to address the social issue of their community in some way.
