Learning Communities


Supporting your Student Success
What is a learning community? Academics + Counseling + Support

A learning community is a group of people who share common academic goals and attitiudes, who meet regularly to collaborate on classwork and host engaging events relating to their community. At Santa Rosa Junior College, we have two different kinds of learning communities: identity based and linked course communities. Building on the success of the Puente and First Year Experience Programs, SRJC is launching three new identity based learning communities in the 2015-16 academic year. 

What's so great about Santa Rosa Junior College's Learning Communities?

Our learning communities work to maximize each student's unique educational experience, potential, and aims. Using assessment scores to line up the instructors and classes students need, they will learn the helpful strategies that keep them engaged in the classroom and in individual learning. As a result, students will quickly begin to discover their ideas and perspectives about education and career aims. With ample support from the College, instructors, counselors, and other students, students will learn to assume responsibility for their own learning, decision making, and college achievement.
