The Global Exploration Living and Learning Community (LLC) is open to first-year students of all majors and interests.

LLCs are comprised of students living together in a wing of a residence hall who are united by common academic and social interests. The Global Exploration LLC will focus on the world at large and is the perfect fit for you if you are curious about other people, places, and perspectives.

You will enroll in a common course with other LLC participants and cooperate in globally-oriented events and activities outside of the classroom. Living in the Global Exploration LLC will help you gain the knowledge and skills for living in a globalized and interconnected world. 

Mission

The Global Exploration Living and Learning Community seeks to foster the development of a supportive community of students, faculty, and staff dedicated to promoting and engaging in opportunities that nurture greater global understanding as well as enhance students' intellectual, personal, and intercultural development through discussion, campus and community events, service, civic engagement, and critical reflection.

Academics

All students living in the LLC will take a common course together during the fall semester.  The common course will fulfill general education requirements. 

The Fall 2014 common course is Political Science 1330: Introduction to International Relations.

Co-Curricular Programs and Community Involvement

The success of a living and learning community hinges on what happens outside of the classroom as much as what happens inside it.  Each semester the Global Exploration LLC offers a variety of co-curricular programs and events. 

Co-curricular programs and activities may include:
• Global Exploration LLC orientation
• Service Learning in Platteville or Dubuque
• Game and international cinema nights
• Study buddies and mentoring
• Intercultural Communication weekend workshop
• Group dinners with university faculty and staff
• Organizing a campus speaker
• Celebrating global holidays and events
