Learning Community

Liaison: Marcia Roberts-Deutsch (808-845-9110, robertsd@hawaii.edu)

A Learning Community (LC) is the linking of two or more courses to encourage collaborative learning. Students and faculty become an ‘ohana that work closely together to foster a deeper mutual understanding of course content, and create an enhanced classroom learning environment that is more engaging academically and socially.

Benefits Of Being A Part Of A Learning Community

Students work closely with their classmates and develop lasting friendships. LC students complete courses and persist at a higher rate than students not in LC. LC students are more likely to become involved in organized activities and to talk informally with other students.

Learning Community Classes

The Learning Community courses are co-requisites and must be taken during the same term. Students will not be able to take one course without the other.
