Living Learning Together At IUP

  • A Living Learning Community is a group of students who live together in a residence hall with a similar academic pursuit or interest area. Through partnership with a variety of academic departments, faculty, and staff, Living Learning Communities (LLC) at IUP provide students opportunities to extend their learning beyond the classroom and into our residence halls, which tie directly into their academic success at IUP!

    IUP LLCs strive to achieve the following goals:

    • Develop a purposeful, open, just, disciplined, caring, and celebrative community.
    • Provide a living-learning community that nurtures students’ intellectual, personal, occupational, and social learning and development.
    • Provide attractive, comfortable, safe, and well-maintained facilities.

    Each LLC is unique in the goals and events offered, but all have:

    • Intentional events and opportunities to develop a close-knit community that fosters a sense of belonging.
    • Dedicated staff members to ensure the success and engagement of the students within the community
