Global Scholars 3-Year BA Program Living Learning Community
Global Scholars spend their first year of study together in a living learning community (LLC) housed within the residence halls. Through the Global Scholars LLC, students attend monthly community meetings, along with the faculty directors, to share dinner, discuss program business, and listen to guest speakers from the university, the federal government, and non-governmental organizations. Global Scholars also attend community trips to venues around the Washington, DC area. In addition, students are provided cross-cultural orientations as they transition to and from their study abroad experiences. The LLC provides a rich environment for academic enrichment and career development.
The LLC is supported by a student program associate (PA). The PA is a Global Scholars student in his or her second or third year of study. He or she attends the cohort classes; works with the faculty directors to implement the experiential, co-curricular, and service components of the class; lives in the same residential neighborhood as the first-year students; and acts as a mentor and role model to first-year students.
