The Gen-X Learning Community is designed to enhance students’ knowledge of social justice issues that relate to women and gender and to help them make early connections with a variety of women and gender related campus, cultural and community programs. During the program, students in the Gen-X learning community will participate in a variety of classroom and community experiences that focus on women and gender. These experiences draw on the ideals of service learning, which combine volunteer efforts with academic study. Students will also make progress towards their General Education requirements and have individualized advising during the program. Finally, through their shared enrollments in classes, students will work in groups on a number of course related projects, form common study groups, and develop core friendships and associations with other Learning Community students who share their interests.
