What is the Global Citizens Learning Community?

This is a program for 40 new, first-year students transitioning from high school to college who are interested in meeting and learning about people from other countries and cultures and seek to actively engage with a world community. Students will take courses and engage in activities together that incorporate knowledge of other parts of the world as well as a recognition of global interconnectedness.

Benefits include:
• Academic and social support
• Peer Mentors
• Facilitated study tables & support in cohort courses
• Planned social and cultural events throughout the year to build sense
of belonging on campus & connection within the global community
• Faculty Mentoring
• Engage in cross-cultural conversations
• Pre-enrolled in cohort courses students take together

 

40 students will be accepted.

Who is eligible?

Students must be first time college students. This means that you have never been enrolled in college before—college classes while you were in high school are fine.

 

 

Deadline to apply, April 1st quickly approaching!

Just a reminder –

The April 1st deadline to submit your application for the Global Citizens Learning Community is quickly approaching. Please submit your application by then to receive first consideration for our program.

If you are interested in living in on-campus housing, please submit your housing application and pay the housing deposit by the earliest probable deadline. This date is earlier than the deadline marketed by the Housing Office, so learning community students can receive priority consideration to get into housing. More information can be found under “Housing” on the navigation bar.
