Residential Learning Communities: Creating Connections between Students, Faculty, and Student Affairs Departments
Zeller, William J.
Journal of College and University Student Housing, v44 n1 p74-82 2017
Recent trends in higher education have called for renewed vitality in the connections between the in-class and out-of-class experiences. This movement has sparked increased interest in the interactions students have with each other, with instructional faculty, and with Student Affairs professionals. This article describes how residential learning communities at a large state research university can serve as an ideal setting for establishing curricular-cocurricular partnerships. These connections have strengthened educational offerings to students with minimal allocation of new funds.
