Product Overview

Successful learning communities can reinvent undergraduate education for the better. This volume explores the challenges, opportunities, and strategies involved in creating learning communities that positively impact students' intellectual and personal growth.

Learning communities are now an integral part of campus life at a wide range of colleges and universities, where they play an important part in efforts to improve student success. They help to create smooth transitions for first-year students and lead to greater satisfaction with the undergraduate experience. Learning communities can make a large campus more navigable, foster a more academically and socially supportive residential environment, and forge connections among students, faculty, and staff.

However, creating learning communities requires commitment and concerted effort from numerous stakeholders. With a wealth of information and hard-earned insight, Building Community: Stories and Strategies for Future Learning Community Faculty and Professionals offers indispensable advice on the design, implementation, maintenance, and improvement of learning communities.
