Student Engagement = Student Learning

Learning Communities are a fundamental strategy institutions use to develop student engagement as they result in the following:

  • The development of support peer groups
  • Greater student involvement in classroom learning
  • Greater student interaction with faculty
  • More time studying
  • Improved syntheses of material and analysis of problems
  • More interaction with diverse peers
  • Perception of greater academic development
  • Greater integration of students academic and non-academic lives
  • A sense of "educational citizenship" - a sense of responsibility for the learning of others as well as one's own.
  • Reduction of high risk behavior
  • Greater student involvement in social activities
  • Students in the same FFC Course will be assigned to the same hall
  • Co-curricular programmatic initiatives will occur to meet the needs of all first year students
  • Commuter First Year Students will be "adopted" by residential communities
