Learning Communities

At IUPUI, first-year seminars facilitate student transition to college by introducing key information and skills needed to succeed and by offering opportunities to connect with faculty, staff, and other students. First-year seminars are taught by an instructional team (faculty member, student mentor, and academic advisor) and are often linked with other entry-level courses (e.g., writing, speech, or math) to form learning communities in which faculty may collaborate in creating class assignments. IUPUI also offers themed learning communities, which engage a cohort of 25 students in three to five shared courses organized around an interdisciplinary theme. Check out STEM related learning communities, including the STEM Community in North Hall, Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) in North Hall, Women in Science House (WISH) in Riverwalk Apartments, and more by visiting learning communities at IUPUI.
