If you really want to achieve the highest quality of learning and success possible at Iowa State University, consider joining the Iowa State University MLLC.
Learning communities are small groups of students who study and learn together. It's a great way for students to meet other students, form study groups, share knowledge, make connections with experienced students and professional staff members, succeed academically and make friends!
The MLLC is designed to build community among multicultural students who are not participants in other campus programs such as Athletics, TRIO programs, etc. or enrolled in other learning communities like the George Washington Carver Scholars, Hixson Scholars Program or Multicultural Vision Program.
With more students entering Iowa State University each year, many individuals share the same questions, concerns, and anxieties. First-year learning communities at Iowa State University help new students face challenges and fears about college life and present opportunities for students to get the support they need to overcome obstacles. For many students who are also first generation college students learning communities can offer support, community and networking opportunities.
Iowa State University offers the Multicultural Leadership Learning Community for first year multicultural students who are not part of other campus programs. The MLLC provides students with opportunities for academic success, career development, identity development and leadership development.
The MLLC can help new students face challenges and fears about college life and present opportunities for YOU to get the support YOU need to overcome obstacles. This learning community offers additional support, academic support, career development, and leadership development.
Specifically the program provides:
· First year seminar courses
· Cohort/team building activities that encourage a sense of belonging and inclusion
· Academic support and FREE tutoring for up to 2 classes per semester
· Individual meetings with university staff to help YOU develop integrated academic and social plan for academic success
· Networking meetings with other university offices and departments to get YOU connected to campus life and culture
· Mentoring opportunities with ISU upper-class students
We encourage you to consider joining a learning Community. Call our office at 800 262-3810 ext.6338 and ask to speak with someone about the MLLC. We will schedule a meeting with you while you attend ISU orientation.
