From Paula Steele
In our global and connected age, authentic community has never been more important. In UConn Learning Communities, a sense of belonging is the foundation for everything that comes after that.
Our Learning Communities are spaces of
Your college journey will take you in many places, and in many phases.
At UConn, it all starts here: in a connected and supportive setting where you can become the best possible version of you.
The growth you undergo during your first year at UConn will be framed by the many-layered support system we’ve created in each Learning Community.
Designed to help you maximize your UConn experience through opportunities, relationships, mentoring, coursework, experiential learning, and traditions, your Learning Community is a unique blend of every aspect of college life.
Whether it be in your Learning Community classes, on the floor with your friends and fellow members, through critical, relevant conversations you’ll have, or through one of the many activities we plan for you, this time of possibility and new adventures will be what you make it.
There is room and time for you in your Learning Community, to discover a sense of belonging, build resilience, expand your worldview, and then propel forward to even more greatness that awaits you.
The decision to be in a Learning Community is the first step to making this world a better place.
