Global Exploration LLC
The Global Exploration Living Learning Community (LLC) is open to first-year students of all majors and interests.
Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are comprised of students living together in a wing of a residence hall who are united by common academic and social interests. The Global Exploration LLC will focus on the world at large and is the perfect fit for you if you are curious about other people, places, and perspectives.
You will enroll in a common course with other Global Exploration LLC participants and cooperate in globally-oriented events and activities outside of the classroom. Living in the Global Exploration LLC will help you gain the knowledge and skills for living in a globalized and interconnected world.
The Global Exploration Living and Learning Community seeks to foster the development of a supportive community of students, faculty, and staff dedicated to promoting and engaging in opportunities that nurture greater global understanding as well as enhance students' intellectual, personal, and intercultural development through discussion, campus and community events, service, civic engagement, and critical reflection.
All students living in the Global Exploration LLC will take a common course together during the fall semester. The common course will fulfill general education requirements.
The Fall 2015 common course is Political Science 2360: International Relations with Dr. Travis Nelson.
