Engagement in the University of Tennessee’s academic life is embedded within the core mission of our Living & Learning Communities. Early exposure to research is important to establish a foundation for student success among our undergraduates. As many of our LLCs share a common academic focus, targeted research development opportunities to our students allow offerings to be more relevant to individualized success.
Living & Learning Community students are provided academic support resources in collaboration with the Student Success Center. Tutors are available during the week for drop-in hours to provide informal assistance for courses in which students encounter difficulty. Whether preparing for an exam or brushing up on material covered in the past week, students are encouraged to stop by our drop-in study hours.
Courses covered are subject to change based upon the knowledge and skills of the tutor serving for the week. Please inquire when beginning the session if the tutor is expected to provide assistance for the course desired. Generally, courses covered span many first-year offerings in Biology, Chemistry, Economics, Engineering Fundamentals, Math, Physics, Psychology.
Living & Learning Community students are eligible to apply for a grant of up to $100 to offset the cost of registration for academic or professional conferences and programs that have a direct connection to the student’s area of study and/or mission of the LLC.
