Cultural Learning Communities

The Cultural Learning Communities (CLCs) merge culture, identity, and academic support through classes, workshops, and peer mentoring. First year students seeking a culturally enriching experience who identify as African American/Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latinx/Chicanx, Native American/American Indian, or multiracial are able to participate in one of our five Cultural Learning Communities.
