Learning Communities and Scholars Programs

Blouin Global ScholarsLearning communities and similar peer groups provide participants with enhanced academic and social opportunities as well as increased student engagement. These communities bring students, staff and faculty together outside the classroom for a deeper level of learning and collaboration. In some cases, students in these communities also live together in the same residence hall to assist in developing supportive peer relationships. Many learning communities at Walsh also include scholarship opportunities or other financial aid.
