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.
Great Beginnings Ceremony
A minimum requirement of 80% attendance of the LC meetings as well as the high quality of participation in and out of the LC. Each Learning Community works bases their activities on a LC curriculum that emphasizes University Engagement, Professional and Civic Responsibility, Integrated Learning, and Intellectual and Self Management.
Sophomore Learning Communities
Recognizing that students are constantly reflecting on their educational goals and seeking greater accomplishments the Center for FYE & LC has teamed with the Cincinnati Sophomore Initiative to offer advanced level learning communities in the sophomore year.
Working in connection with first-year learning communities upper classmen 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.
