Purpose and Goals

Purpose
Living Learning Communities bring the college learning experience into the everyday lives of its residents.  Faculty, staff, and students who are part of the LLC are making a commitment to learning and community building.  The program fosters collaboration between academic affairs and student affairs by integrating in-and-out-of-the-classroom experiences.  Aligning the students’ residential life experience with the academic mission of the college enhances the culture within the halls by providing experiential learning, educational programs, and community service opportunities.
