Learning Communities

What is a Learning Community?


Freshman learning communities at Missouri Western give first year students the tools and opportunities to connect with other Griffons during the fall semester.

A learning community is a group of students who will have more than one class of their choice together. Like a family, students will attend classes together and build relationships with one another. The learning community classes will be taught by specific professors and staff who in return plan the curriculum together under one common theme.

Research shows that students not only build community and friendship in Learning Community classes, they actually perform academically 10-15% better as compared to other classes. Professors and staff will also plan field trips and fun activities outside of the classroom for the students to take part in. Learning together is just the beginning.
