Learning Communities

Metropolitan Community College has three types of learning communities. We offer student learning communities, faculty learning communities, and a college-wide learning community. 

Student Learning Communities

Learning communities are student groups focused around classes, programs, interests or educational goals.

Joining a learning community enhances the college experience by enabling you to form closer relationships with instructors and classmates.

Faculty, counselors, advisors and students work together to help achieve academic goals. Your learning experience is strengthened because counseling services are built into the program.


Top 5 Reasons For Being Part of a Student Learning Community

  • Extra faculty, counselor/advisor and peer support
  • Meaningful learning experiences that connect your classes
  • Closer relationships with your teachers
  • Friendships and connections with other students
  • Better chance for academic success

MCC's learning communities serve different purposes but all have one goal — to help you be successful at MCC, so you can fulfill your career goals.

Faculty Learning Communities

Faculty learning communities are offered throughout the year to give faculty the opportunity to meet to engage in structured conversations, seminars and projects associated with the scholarship of teaching and learning.  Most are faculty driven, so any faculty who has an idea for a faculty learning community (FLC) may submit their idea by clicking to the FLC Proposal Form.

College-wide learning community

MCC's college-wide learning community is our common book program, Metro Reads!  This program connects everyone at MCC - staff, students, faculty and administrators - by encouraging them to read and participate in activities related to the selected common book. The Metro Reads! book for 2013-14 and 2014-15 is The Try by James P. Owen.
