Attend the ScHOLA2RS House Information Session on Wednesday, January 20th at 6 p.m. in Student Union 304A to learn more about this new Learning Community!

ScHOLA2RS House will be opening Fall 2016 and will be located in the new NextGen Residence Hall on Hilltop.

ScHOLA2RS House is a Learning Community designed to support the scholastic efforts of male students who identify as African American/Black through academic and social/emotional support, access to research opportunities, and professional development. The intent of this Learning Community is to increase the retention and persistence of students using educational and social experiences to enhance their academic success at UConn and beyond in graduate and professional school placement. ScHOLA2RS House will encourage involvement with the larger university community to foster peer and mentor relationships and will actively engage students in inclusion efforts at UConn.

The Learning Community Program at UConn is comprised of 29 residential and non-residential Learning Communities. The communities have a total of 2,500 undergraduate students, and make up 40% of the incoming class. As outlined in UConn’s Academic Vision, Learning Communities provide cohorts of students with opportunities to investigate areas of interest, either based on their major or an interdisciplinary topic, through guided courses and co-curricular activities. Living and Learning Communities develop knowledgeable, responsible, engaged citizens in a culture of inquiry within a learner-centered university. While assisting students with their transition to academic life, they offer a small college feel and a sense of place on a large campus; they promote meaningful and sustained interactions with faculty, staff and student leaders; and they provide an effective structure for curricular coherence, deeper learning, student success, persistence, and engagement.
