The new Early and Elementary Education Living-Learning Community gives freshmen an opportunity to examine educational topics related to early childhood and elementary education through field trips, workshops, and discussions while taking classes with other students who are considering the teaching profession as a career.
Students will enroll is the same sections of major specific and core curriculum classes as part of this experience. Faculty will assist students in connecting with upper-level students, learning professional skills, and examining unique experiences within the community.
(Note: This community is limited to 80 first-time freshmen in the early and/or elementary education majors within Teachers College.)
Partners: To accomplish these goals, the Early and Elementary Education Living-Learning Community works very closely with the Department of Elementary Education and partners with other campus departments, including Academic Advising and Student Voluntary Services.
Programming: Students may choose to participate in visits to charter schools, community service days, a behind the scenes tour at the Indianapolis Children's Museum, in-hall advising nights, visits to the state capitol for Teacher Advocacy Day, and more.
Location: This community is located in Woody/Shales Halls within LaFollette Complex.
