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.
