Transfer Learning Community
To make Sacramento State a place where you feel at home, EOP has developed a program called Learning Communities. An EOP Learning Community is a small group of transfer students (20) and faculty who all work and learn together in a community atmosphere. Students are placed (administratively by EOP) in the courses 1-day prior to their scheduled Orientation date. Transfer students must have confirmed their interest in participating in this community with EOP prior to their Fall 2011 enrollment.
The focus of the community will be on an exploration of multicultural America along with an investigation of biracial and multiracial identities. Learning together students will acquire the knowledge and skills to understand cultural issues in a broader sense while learning about their own cultural identities. The courses in the learning community will also enable students to learn about career development and planning, as well as allow for the acquisition of skills needed to be successful in college and life beyond college through the Ethnic 198 course.
Within the context of a learning community, students are able to make connections to helpful people and offices on campus. Also, students are able to build meaningful relationships with their peers and collaborating faculty by taking a set of four classes together. This greatly enhances their ability to succeed at the university. As a Learning Community student, you have access to many of our program services, as well as our Learning Community teaching assistants. Collectively, the services of the program facilitate both your progress and success during your first semester at the university.
This Learning Community will complete 6 of the REQUIRED 9 units of upper division GE courses which must be completed in residence at Sacramento State.
