I will serving as part of the First Year Learning Community (FYLC) leadership team along with Jennifer Sears and Karen Goodlad for AY 2018-2019. A curricular Learning Community is a group of students who co-enroll in two or more courses, generally in different disciplines that are linked together by a common theme, in an academic semester. Learning Communities is one of the ten high-impact educational practices recognized nationally to improve student persistence using data from assessment to increase retention. FYLCs provide an opportunity for students to begin their college experience with other students who share similar interests and career objectives.
