Learning Communities are identified as high impact practices that are designed to increase student success and persistence in college. CU Denver LCs have five goals.
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.
LDAR 1100 "Be The Change"
This class is for people who want to make the world a better place and have questions such as: Does my voice matter? Can I make the world a better place? Is it possible to have a joyful career that pays me enough and supports positive change at the same time? We will explore how each of us can answer all these questions for ourselves with a resounding “Yes!” by looking at how the tools of ecological design can be applied to all areas of life. Over the course of the semester we will approach making change at all levels from our inner selves to our personal relationships to our social systems by looking to patterns from the natural world. Along the way, we’ll be applying these frameworks to real-world projects while building deep and meaningful connections with our fellow students. Throughout the course we will focus on supporting each other as we develop answers and ideas that are meaningful to our own lives. This learning community is open to all majors.
