A Learning Community (LC) is a group of students who take a common set of courses together and share a common experience around their academics. Learning community sections are linked courses that allow students to take related courses together. The curriculum is designed to link both professors and students to their peers as well as to each other. This learning environment creates communities of learners, students who develop a deeper commitment to learning and achieve greater academic success than students who enroll in “stand-alone” courses. In addition, because linked faculty teach the same students, instructors are able to maximize student achievement by sharing course goals, content, and activities.
