Our learning communities promote increased student success by:

  • Providing student-centered environments which address multiple learning styles
  • Encouraging collaborative learning which develops integrative thinking skills
  • Fostering connections among students, faculty, and staff
  • Helping students to become responsible, actively engaged learners
  • Teaching students to identify and access sources of support
  • Encouraging vibrant teaching partnerships which promote richer and more flexible pedagogies and teaching practices
  • Enabling faculty to build connections among disciplines and create more engaged classrooms
  • Fostering increased conversation among faculty beyond the learning communities
  • Incorporating ongoing assessment which is responsive to the evolving needs of these learning communities
