About the Design Your Own Program
This residential option is an opportunity for all undergraduate students to design a Living Learning Community in which they can live from their second year onwards. Each community is asked to gather weekly to engage with their topic and is provided funding to that end. Communities are asked to show consistent termly progress towards their goals, upon which termly and yearly renewal are dependent.
Living Learning Communities are a collaborative learning experience among students, staff and faculty. Proposals that indicate a strong ability to meet this goal are preferable. Proposals are expected to have an interdisciplinary focus, as this has been a key to successful past communities. We are looking for proposals that take intellectual engagement and residential learning to a deeper level.
Proposals for renewing or creating new Living Learning Communities are due on March 13th, 2017 at 8:00 a.m. to be considered for implementation in the Summer 2017 or 2017-2018 academic year (fall, winter, spring).
