One of the most enticing features of the Program is the co-curricular component. Each team is provided a nominal budget to help fund programming that happens both in and out of the classroom.
Trips, local outings, and even national and international travel are possible. Communities have planned co-curricular learning experiences in Cleveland, Detroit, Washington D.C., and Ireland.
Together, our Bengal Community of Scholars Program become communities where real learning resides.
Faculty who teach in learning communities collaborate with faculty outside of their own departments and disciplines, often leading to a sense of renewal and increased engagement with the university. Learning Communities promote deeper interactions among students and faculty, as well as Academic Affairs staff and Student Affairs professionals. LC instructors increase their repertoire of student-centered pedagogical practices by participating in LC faculty development opportunities and by sharing ideas with each other. LC faculty are encouraged and supported in their pursuit of scholarly teaching for deep student learning.
Two or more general education or lower level major courses are linked together by a common theme. The same 25 students are co-enrolled in both courses within a learning community and work closely with each other and their professors. LC faculty will collaborate to help students make intellectual connections across and between their courses.
