Why Linked Courses

Research shows students who take courses within their learning community are more likely to take ownership of their academic career and be more engaged with their community.


Community Types

Associated Community

These are smaller learning communities within residence halls focused on an area of study or student interest. Students in these communities will meet others who share their interests, and have unique opportunities to pursue those interests outside of the classroom.

Linked Course Community

These are academically focused communities where students live near each other and take major classes together. This helps students connect with others who have similar interests, gives them an opportunity to form relationships outside the classroom and gives them access to academic support when they need it.
