What is a Learning Community (LC)?
Learning communities are small groups of students who have similar academic goals and attitudes that are co-enrolled in one or more classes together. LC's instill a sense of community and support among students and professional staff. Research has shown that student involvement in a LC is associated with increased academic success, student involvement and motivation, student retention and time to degree-completion, and enhanced critical thinking and intellectual development.
