Learning Communities bring together faculty from different disciplines to collaborate with one another and their students. Students in a Learning Community enroll in courses linked together with a common theme or question. They are taught in a structure that gives students enriched interaction with each other and with their instructors. This learner-centered environment provides stimulating and challenging opportunities for students to grow intellectually.
Service Learning provides opportunities for students' voluntary service in the community. Partnerships with local service agencies and with schools become extensions of the classroom, in which students explore course-related issues through participation in reflective tasks, such as reports, journals, and presentations. In this way, classroom theory is related to the real world.
Project-based learning incorporates community-originated projects into the classroom environment. Students work on a project which helps them learn teamwork, project management, budgeting and other skills important for success in the workplace.
