The Dr. P Eric Abercrumbie Living-Learning Community (ALLC), supported by the Office of Ethnic Programs and Services (EPS) and the African American Cultural & Resource Center (AACRC), is a residence-based learning community in Turner Hall for students who have been accepted into the Darwin T. Turner Scholars Program and/or the Transitions Program. Participants will live in an environment that fosters personal and social identity development, leadership engagement, and academic success. Spots in the ALLC are limited and can be selected on the Housing Application by May 3, 2023. 

Through this community, we honor the history and legacy of those who came before us, while providing students with the opportunity to create their own path towards leaving their mark at the University of Cincinnati and larger community. Students participate in a variety of service-learning projects and meet monthly. Members of this community engage in dialogue and reflection that facilitate a sense of pride in one’s racial and ethnic identity, as well as their other intersecting identities.
