Learning communities bolster student success
New SEHD options support college graduation goals, friendships and educational experiences
The School of Education & Human Development (SEHD) has started two new learning communities for undergraduate students: the Curious Teacher Learning Community, focused on changing lives through teaching in culturally and linguistically diverse settings, and the bilingual Familias y Justicia, or Families and Justice Learning Community, focused on effectively serving culturally and linguistically diverse individuals and families.
What is a learning community? Ours begin with a group of connected courses in students’ freshman year and extend across their sophomore and junior years. These communities offer SEHD students the chance to combine educational experiences, co-curricular experiences and service learning in a high-impact, theme-based program while supporting college graduation goals.
