The purpose of the Haslam Scholars Program Living and Learning Community (LLC) is to promote collegiality and build community among the first-year Haslam Scholars. Participation in this community provides opportunities to develop life-long friendships and fosters collaborative learning. Scholars will participate in a number of curricular and co-curricular activities, which focus on the program pillars of social justice, social responsibility, integrity, and diversity. Through their curricular and co-curricular activities scholars will:
- Meet faculty across academic colleges and disciplines;
- Gain a better understanding of social problems and the power dynamics that influence them;
- Learn to leverage their scholarship and learning to support community-based problem solving; and
- Gain a better understanding of the importance of civic engagement in a democratic society.
The Haslam Scholars Program LLC is housed in the Fred D. Brown Jr. Residence Hall, and all first-year Haslam Scholars are required to live in the Haslam Scholars LLC during their first academic year of study.
