Learning Communities

Becoming a Learning Community Member

Who is eligible to apply?

All students who will be considered sophomores in Fall 2014 (either in number of credits or year in college) are welcome to apply. But due to the limited number of seats available, to be accepted into the Citizenship & Service Learning Community students must demonstrate how they will benefit from participation in their application.

How do I apply?

Applications are currently being accepted for seats in the Fall 2014 Learning Community, and will continue to be accepted until the program is full. To ensure full consideration, please complete your application soon!

The application will ask you some basic demographic questions, like your name and UWGB email address, the number of credits you'll have completed by the end of spring 2014, and your GPA.

It will also include two open-ended short answer questions (listed below) that we will use to determine who we offer spots to in the Learning Community: (Each should be answered in approximately 200 words on the application)

  1. What does citizenship and service mean to you? Why do you want to participate in the Citizenship and Service Sophomore Learning Community?
  2. What makes you a good candidate for a spot in the Citizenship and Service Learning Community?

You will be notified about the decision on your application by April 7th, 2014. If your application is approved, you will be asked to officially accept a position in the Learning Community, and we will then enroll you in the Learning Community courses.

If you know any other UWGB students who may be interested in the Learning Community, and who will be sophomores in Fall 2014, feel free to forward this email and encourage them to apply!
