San Antonio College's learning communities help maximize academic and personal growth for students.  Faculty collaborate on teaching and preparing students to work effectively in learning and working environments.  Learning communities also promote increased student success by:

  • Encouraging collaborative learning which develops integrative thinking skills.
  • Fostering connections among students and faculty.
  • Helping students to become responsible, actively engaged learners.
  • Teaching students to identify and access sources of support.
  • Enabling faculty to build connections among disciplines and create more engaged classrooms.
  • Fostering learning beyond the classroom.

Research across the United States show that students who participate in Learning Communities earn higher grades, make friends faster, and graduate at higher and faster rates than students who don't participate.
