10 Living-Learning Communities Some of the most stimulating conversations of your college years won’t happen in a classroom. Educational programs Creative activities Provide support and mentorship Faculty interactions The LLCs for are: Accounting and Finance Marketing Global Business Entrepreneurship Psychology Government Communication & Journalism Honors Explorations Management Law and Public Policy Science and Health Professions

11 Staff Philosophy for Collaborating with Parents/Guardians We encourage students to take an active role in working to resolve problems that may arise. Conflicts always have multiple perspectives and points of view. We work to gather all perspectives and learn as much as we can about the situation. Professional and student staff members are trained in conflict mediation skills and can often help roommates to acquire necessary listening and communication skills that will assist them throughout their time of living on campus. Staff will work directly with the students involved to help resolve the issue.
