Learning communities are often crafted with a particular population in mind. Often, populations identified as having particular needs related to success in higher education. In 1998, The Key Communities were created with the needs of four very specific populations in mind. During this presentation, we will share the philosophy behind the development of the interdisciplinary learning community which focuses on supporting First Generation to College students, Students of Color, Low-Income students, and Out-of-State students. Participants in this session will learn about the specific components that provide students within the Key Communities the support needed to be successful at Colorado State University. In addition, assessment data will be shared to highlight the program components which have the most impact on student success within our identified populations. However, because the most telling stories are those told by students themselves, student experience and perspectives will be shared. To conclude our session, we will share the lessons learned from a decade of experience implementing this diverse, interdisciplinary community.
Goals and Target Audience:
• Participants will gain an understanding of the structures required to sustain a learning community designed and implemented for underrepresented students. • Participants will hear about the positive outcomes associated with the community through multiple assessments including student satisfaction. • Participants will learn about lessons learned from a decade of experience with a diverse, interdisciplinary learning community
