Learning Communities

PREPARING YOU FOR THE WORLD AS IT IS GOING TO BE

The workforce of the future will be an increasingly collaborative one. Leading-edge companies like Apple and Google have already focused their work environments around collaboration, while other organizations begin to transition their corporate culture around the team concept. As global commerce and communication increases, so too will the need for leaders to connect, collaborate and create. High Point University’s Learning Communities are designed to prepare you for that world.

BECAUSE TWO, OR TWENTY, MINDS ARE BETTER THAN ONE

Learning Communities support first-year students’ academic and social development by providing challenging courses and supportive environments. LCs enroll cohorts of students in purposefully linked courses designed to promote conversations across disciplines and beyond the classroom. LCs promote effective academic habits, encouraging students to find meaningful connections between their courses and their group activities. LC faculty also serve as academic mentors, modeling for students the important skills of inquiry, analysis and synthesis. Membership in an LC empowers first-year students with confidence and a sense of belonging as they start their journey toward a life of success and significance.

When you join an LC, you join a high impact program designed to

• Broaden your academic experience

• Connect you with peers and instructors who share your interests

• Get you involved in campus activities

• Strengthen your study skills

And as an LC member, you receive

• Priority enrollment in LC courses

• Guaranteed housing in affiliated residence halls

• Study group and co-curricular opportunities

To help you with this decision, consider reading the benefits that national research on learning communities have concluded can be attributed to learning communities.
