    The Learning Community

    A Learning Community is a set of linked courses that place students with similar interests together in two or three courses. Learning Communities provide the opportunity to develop friendships and experience learning as a dynamic exchange of ideas and perspectives during the transition to campus life and the academy. Professors collaborate with each other to define the connections and intersections of the educational experience. The goal of participation in a Learning Community is for you to discover and appreciate the relationships of disciplines and knowledge and to provide a sense of place within the university community. You will have the full support of the Professors of your courses, the Office for Undergraduate Studies, and the Office of First Year Experiences as you embark on the most important journey of your life – the pathway to becoming an educated citizen.
