Residential Program

Recommendation 2.7 Curricular coordination will occur with the potential freshman residency requirement in order to create engagement activities and learning communities

Recommendation 2.8 The University will explore the potential of student learning communities and implement at least one pilot program.

Initially, learning communities through block scheduling could be developed through a pilot program, where a group of students are enrolled in a block of classes together. The size, scope, and success of such a program would need to be assessed, and the relation to University course scheduling must be considered. If successful, variations on learning communities for different student populations (e.g., online students, commuters, transfer students) should be developed.
