Living-Learning Communities Annual Report

Excerpt image

The Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) at Florida State University are a vital part of the academic engagement programs available to our first-year residential students. LLC members live in the same residence hall and participate in academic activities related to a specific theme or major as facilitated by a faculty director who often has office space available within the building. Currently, there are seven LLCs involving nearly 500 students.

Collective LLC highlights and accomplishments for the 2014-15 academic year include:

  • Incorporating new E-Series (IFS) courses into LLC offerings to maximize opportunities for students to meet general education requirements within their programs.
  • Expanding student mentorship opportunities and involvement with LeaderShape©.
  • Infusing additional service-learning, study abroad, tutoring, major/career exploration, and other high-impact educational practices into our LLCs.
  • Participating in the academic carousel at Preview with a professional display board to highlight each of our LLC programs.
  • Achieving an 11% increase in LLC applications over the prior year.
  • Holding the first planning retreat for LLC faculty to discuss opportunities and challenges and focus on short- and long-term planning initiatives.
  • Producing a Living-Learning Community Handbook to clarify operating procedures and guidelines for LLC faculty and residence life staff.
  • Assisting Florida A&M University with dialog and planning for their new LLC programs.
  • Producing this first installment of an annual report for all LLC programs.
