What is a Learning Community?

Learning Communities consist of two courses linked together to explore common themes and encourage partnerships with professors and peers. Learning Community students and faculty participate as a group in rewarding community engagement projects.

Learning Communities are different from other classes in that they are scheduled back to back, usually in the same room, with the same students in both classes. The professors of each class work together to integrate material in ways that show the connections between the two courses. This makes the material more engaging, interactive, and easy to remember and retain.
