Learning Communities in the Residence Halls
For students excited to engage within the community, the Community Outreach Learning Community offers an open and welcoming space in which to build friendships, develop leadership skills, and deepen awareness of local and global issues. Through a variety of service activities and experiences as well as floor programs, Community Outreach students will explore the city of Boston, make positive changes in their community, and connect these experiences to their academic learning, leadership development, and professional career.
Community Outreach’s floor programs typically happen at least twice a month and help to broaden students' understanding of local and national nonprofits, service opportunities on and off campus, current events that relate to humanitarian and environmental work, and the importance of activism. These programs serve to enhance students' leadership skills and interest in their chosen field while in a safe, inclusive, and fun environment.
Residents will engage in service activities throughout the year that they will create and plan themselves, culminating in a year-end capstone project. The Community Outreach Learning Community resides on the 8th floor of the Little Building Residence Hall on a space-available basis.
