Learning Communities

First-Year Learning Communities
Learning communities offer diverse groups of first-year students and faculty the opportunity to come together based on shared academic interests to interact in two or more university courses. The University of Cincinnati has more than 100 different opportunities to choose from.

Peer Leader Program

Learning communities are led by upper classmen (called "peer leaders") who  implement a wide array of activities and processes such as modeling successful learning routines, organizing academic collaboration among students, and deepening connections to faculty and advisors for first-year students.
