What is a Learning Community?
Learning Communities are unique, innovate learning experiences that typically involve students enrolling as a cohort in two or more courses connected by a common theme. Learning Communities can be as simple as two courses linked by a common topic to fully integrated programs of study.
In a Learning Community, students have greater opportunities to make connections with their professors and classmates and, in some cases, with the community beyond the college. They also have the opportunity to make connections between the subject matter of their coursework in ways that enhance and deepen learning.
