Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) at Slippery Rock University offer the opportunity for residence hall students to live with other students who share similar academic, career, or personal interests.
- Research supports Living-Learning Communities, stating that students who are successful academically and engaged socially are more likely to persist and graduate (Vincent Tinto, Ph.D., Distinguished University Professor at Syracuse University, and chair of the Higher Education program).
- At Slippery Rock, we strive to encourage our students to develop personally, become responsible global citizens, and to learn for a lifetime. The Living-Learning Communities are one of many ways to help our students achieve this.
- Students who live in these communities identify that the greatest benefit of living in an LLC is the opportunity to live and learn with other students who share their academic, professional and personal interests.
Living-Learning Communities Cornerstones of Character:
Citizenship- being an active community member who values respect, communication, and individual differences.
Knowledge- seeking out new learning experiences in order to gain new information, understanding, and awareness of the world around you.
Involvement- making a commitment to actively participating in activities offered in your LLC, in your residence hall, and in the campus community.
Responsibility- being held accountable for your own learning experience and social involvement within the LLC.
Enthusiasm- an eagerness to learn, grow and have fun - college is about learning as much as you can, and LLCs help you make the most of it!
