At Dickinson College, Learning Communities are an extension of the First-Year Seminar Program. Two or more seminars are linked or clustered around a theme. They enroll students in a common residential learning environment.
The Learning Communities at Dickinson allow first-year students to participate in a community with other students who have an opportunity to work closely with faculty, staff and other students.
By selecting to participate in a Learning Community, students and faculty commit to taking the learning out of the classroom and into the residence hall, the community, and the wider world.
In 2009-2010, learning communities will be housed in the following residence halls:
- Drayer Hall (Image and Identity, Identity and Social Justice)
- Davidson-Wilson Hall (Culture, Science and Environmental Sustainability)
