Learning Communities (LC's) are classes that are clustered or linked during an academic term, often around an interdisciplinary theme and contain a common cohort of students. A variety of approaches are used to build these LC's, intended to restructure the students’ time, credit, and learning experiences to build community among students, between students and their teachers, and among faculty members and disciplines.
Register for an LC
You can register for an LC (LCSE) in HOWDY along with your other courses to add them to your course schedule, but no course credit or credit hours will be awarded because they are non-credit bearing courses. No tuition costs are associated with these courses, but small fees may be applied to pay for resources, field trips, and guest speakers.

Graduate Research to Researcher (GR2R) is interested in providing a place for graduate students and guests to meet each week to discuss their research and also learn more about an ecosystem approach to coastal and ocean stewardship from an international and nation-specific perspective. In turn, this goal supports the concept underlying the IDP-MARB and the MARM Programs: an integrative, interdisciplinary approach. This group of scholars and students gathers weekly to discuss current projects, work cooperatively to develop to understanding of complex environmental issues, critique and practice presentations, develop a supportive scholarly network, and apply science to management challenges.
Faculty are invited to meet together to discuss issues of interest. Weekly topics will be posted. Topic suggestions should be sent to Susan Knock at email@example.com. Refreshments will be provided. No sign-up needed.
