LEARN the WCU Way!
- Link living and learning designs with purpose and intention: Students are organized into living-learning cohorts that appeal to their interests and goals, thus the classroom and the living room reinforce and promote integrated learning.
- Engage students via common learning opportunities: By design, the Learning Community will encourage faculty and staff to examine and explore all options to optimize student success.
- Authenticate new learning experiences via application: Students transform new understandings approached via multiple avenues as they synthesize their learning experience.
- Reframe the conversation from "I" to "We": Resilience is fostered via support structures and shared experiences. Retention will follow as students are guided to reflect and refine goals and choices.
- Negate many sources of fear and frustration as students transition: Students discover they are not isolated as they face challenges together and learn the power of collaboration, cooperation, and support networks.
