What is a Living Learning Community?

A Living Learning Community, or LLC, is a Residential Education initiative designed to support the academic, social, and personal needs of Stevens students as they pursue their academic goals.  Students living in an LLC have the opportunity to engage in academic experiences with their peers, to interact with faculty and staff, and to enjoy the benefits of being a part of a diverse community with common scholarly and social interests and identities.  

Each living learning community is a collaboration between students, faculty, and staff from across campus focused on engaging the student participants in programs and events that enhance their Stevens experience.  Students will be a part of a close-knit community that supports academic success, cultivates an inclusive and supportive environment, fosters personal growth and social responsibility, and develops leaders and global citizens during their time at Stevens and beyond.
