The Learning Community Program at Montgomery College is about to grow, and we want to hear from you with proposal ideas.

Please consider ways in which your students and your program can benefit from the addition of a Learning Community.

From President DeRionne Pollard's 2011 Report to the Community:

The College's learning communities integrated courses that enroll a common cohort of students and explore an interdisciplinary theme. A recent College study found that, within two years, [AELP learning community] students had attempted and passed more credits than a control group of students enrolled in stand-alone courses. Additionally, more of these students had completed the American English Language Program and passed the gateway course, EN 101/A.

We are interested in:

* Learning Communities that are student success initiatives;
* Learning Communities for programs with concurrent requirements;
* Humanities Learning Communities;
* STEM Learning Communities;
* Your own wonderful ideas.

Fill out the attached LEARNING COMMUNITY PROPOSAL with a faculty partner and e-mail to by Monday, April 16, 2012. Or just call with an idea: 240-567-1369.
