Academic Learning Communities

ResLifeCommunityIconIn our Academic Learning Communities, students are taking at least one academic course together in addition to living together in one community. Just like our Academic Clustered Communities, our Academic Learning Communities exist to help students successfully transition from the secondary school environment to being a successful student at ISU. Students in these communities have opportunities to connect their classes and their faculty beyond the traditional classroom. Students can expect to have an Academic Peer Advocate who serves as the teaching assistant in their common class. Their faculty members will also come into the halls regularly for events, study sessions and often even to join students for dinner. Many of our academic communities begin with a pre-fall program held before the start of classes in August. Some communities are invite only while others are by application. Applications for Academic Learning Communities are separate from the Housing Application and can be found on the Residential Life Website. These communities create an intentional environment where the focus is to help them build relationships and connections with faculty, staff, and fellow students that will benefit them as they move forward in their academic career.

Indiana State University Residential Life offers the following Academic Learning Communities:

Leadership Learning Community (Application Required)

The Leadership Learning Community (LLC) is a living-learning community on Indiana State University campus sponsored by the Residential Life Office. The LLC is dedicated to developing students into future leaders on our campus and in the community. Student leadership skills will increase through community service, inclusiveness, effective communication, self-discovery, personal growth and involvement. Members will strive for excellence: while keeping a positive attitude, being responsible, compassionate, and serving as a positive role model for others. This community will require participation in a retreat arriving to campus on Sunday, August 13th, 2017.

Multicultural Men Achieving Scholarship (Application Required)

MMAS mission is to assist multicultural men in reaching their personal and professional goals through education, leadership, and mentorship. Multicultural men will actively engage in activities to help them become responsible men, successful scholars, and productive citizens. Participants will understand the importance of character development, community engagement, and seek opportunities to develop others in their community, town, city, and world. This community will require participation in a retreat arriving to campus on Sunday, August 13th, 2017.

Multicultural Women Achieving Scholarship (Application Required)

This community will require participation in a retreat arriving to campus on Sunday, August 13th, 2017.

College of Technology

College of Technology Academic Learning Communities include Applied Engineering, Aviation, and Interior/Architecture Design. Students majoring in these College of Technology programs are able to participate in College of Technology Academic Learning communities. Students participating in these communities will take a major related course together in the fall semester and either a major related course or general studies math course together in the spring semester. The Academic Peer Advocate on these floors will be College of Technology majors who have already taken these classes and serve as the teaching assistants in the class. Students will have direct contact and interaction with College of Technology faculty and staff both inside and outside of their classroom setting and be a part of the Math Refresher Program.  College of Technology Academic Learning Communities include Applied Engineering, Aviation, and Interior/Architecture Design.

Eco Reps

The Eco-Rep living-learning community is a unique community at Indiana State University because Eco-Reps do not live together on one floor or in one building. Instead, eco-reps are spread throughout campus. Students who participate in the eco-rep living-learning community have an interest in learning more about sustainability and have a desire to be a campus leader and peer-educator about sustainability on campus. Members of this community will have an opportunity to learn behind-the-scenes about Indiana State University and the Office of Residential Life's commitment to sustainability. As part of this community, students have the opportunity to partner with faculty, staff, and students to make real changes that impact the health of our planet, plan exciting events, and encourage peers to get involved.

Undergraduate students with a passion, or even just an interest, in learning about sustainability, a desire to teach their ability to lead others and make significant change, and a willingness to commit to the program for an academic year are encouraged to apply.
