Our learning communities have specific focus areas designed to empower students to connect closely with peers with similar interest. Students in these communities live on the same floor in order to share academic and social learning experiences.
Students can see connections between classroom and out-of-classroom learning; network with faculty and staff; and work together toward common goals. Each learning community strives to empower students to become engaged global citizens.
