What is a Learning Community?

A learning community is a group of students who share common academic goals and plans. Their required courses are linked and focus on common themes and connected learning activities. The students in the Learning Community learn and study together, with support of faculty, who collaborate to help students explore their careers and learn strategies to be successful.

  • Earn better grades, drop fewer classes, finish their education more quickly and enjoy college more.
  • Have preferred scheduling and reserved office hours with faculty.
  • Complete Admissions requirements and general education electives needed for Allied Health programs at NHTI.
