Cultural Learning Communities
The Cultural Learning Communities merge culture, identity and academic support through workshops and peer mentoring. Freshmen seeking a culturally enriching experience, and who also identify as African American/Black, or Asian/Pacific Islander, or Native American/American Indian are able to participate in one of our three learning communities.
- 360: African American/Black Learning Community
- EDGE: Asian/Pacific American Learning Community
- First Year Scholars: Native American/American Indian Learning Community
Each community has been created in partnership with the associated Cultural Center (African American Student Affairs; Asian Pacific American Student Affairs; Native American Student Affairs) on campus. The learning communities provide participants with the opportunity to connect with other students who identify as being from the same cultural background, while also focusing on campus and community engagement, personal growth, academic excellence, and a diverse UA experience.
This is accomplished through workshops, peer mentoring, cultural events, and guest speakers.
All students interested in the Learning Communities and who identify with one of the specified cultural groups are able to participate. Just complete the participation form by clicking the "GET INVOLVED" tab above, and fill-in the form, or COMPLETE PARTICIPATION FORM HERE.
