Living-Learning Community

What is a Living-Learning Community?

A living-learning community is a cohort of undergraduates who live in the same residence hall and take a portion of their classes together.  In addition, special programming and extracurricular activities allow for the LLC students to interact in a more relaxed atmosphere.

The Health Professions Collaborative

Interested in being part of a program that will help shape the health professional you become after graduation?  The Health Professions Collaborative may be right for you!

The Health Professions Collaborative is a program that places 25 students from the Dwight Schar College of Nursing & Health Sciences together in a living-learning community (LLC) during their freshman year.  Students will also participate in a cohort where they will:

  • Connect to Ashland University
  • Identify as future health professionals
  • Develop a strong sense of citizenship, community and purpose
  • Engage in self-directed learning behaviors
  • Become life-long learners

Students will take thefollowing two courses during their first semester:

  • AOS 101: Accent on Success
    Instructors: Melissa Snyder and Karen Estridge
  • HS 180: Lifetime Wellness
    Instructor: Laura Kruger

What are the Benefits?

In addition, students will live in the same residence hall as other athletic training, exercise science, dietetics and nursing students - which provides an immediate support system during their critical first year.

Students will also gain:

  • Better connections with other students
  • Enhanced participation in campus-related activities
  • Stronger connections to the campus/surrounding community
  • Easy access to other students in your profession
  • Increased interaction with faculty and staff
  • An appreciation of how academic disciplines are interrelated
  • Better academic performance due to deep, high-quality and substantive learning

Also, students will learn how to work in teams, are more likely to graduate on time and will build lasting professional relationships.
