Living learning communities (LLCs) can enhance learning across disciplines, foster holistic learning, and promote peer and faculty-student interaction. How can faculty and campus partners create an LLC that delivers these benefits? Building the LLC infrastructure requires cross-campus collaboration. Students, faculty, and other partners also must collaborate in sustaining and continuously improving an LLC whose members are strongly tied together and in which the benefits of an LLC, in fact, are realized. An LLC director will describe building an infrastructure tailored to students who share an inquiry-driven approach to learning. Students will describe the LLC's benefits and most effective aspects and their partnership in sustaining and improving the LLC. Presenters will participate with audience groups in imagining the design of an LLC, followed by discussion and questions.
