What are they?
Learning Communities are double the fun! Our LCs include two courses that are linked together (gotta sign up for both!). The professors tag team to deliver a class experience that goes beyond the classroom with interdisciplinary themes, shared assignments, and a fun field trip. But the best part of all is the bond with your classmates from spending all that quality time together.
We’ve got all sorts of combos to choose from! We’ve got LCs paired with College Success, LCs with First Year Seminars, LCs with cool Core classes, LCs for Criminal Justice majors, and one just for Engineering students!
Why should you join one?
Communities are identified as high impact practices that increase student
success and persistence in college. The goals of CU Denver LCs are:
- Maximize academic success of student
- Foster a sense of community and
connection among students, peer mentors, faculty, and staff
- Provide an opportunity for students
to meaningfully engage with faculty
- Offer support to students during key
transitional moments, such as first year in college, transfer in CU Denver, and
- Boost both engagement on campus and
satisfaction with the CU Denver student experience
How do you sign up?
Registration for Learning Communities occurs during New Student Orientation. After the academic advising session is complete, you will visit the registration labs. Simply choose both courses for your selected learning community and register for them at the same time.
