Social Benefits


The Learning Community Program provides students with opportunities to engage in coordinated programming as well as student driven activities. These activities help students:

  • Develop skills
  • Deepen self awareness
  • Connect with their peers
  • Feel a sense of belonging

LC members will also benefit from access to designated shared community spaces and dedicated peer mentors who will assist them in navigating the UConn experience.
