Learning Communities

This program is designed by and for first-generation college students. Based on the Bridges Out of Poverty series, the Learning Community provides a supportive experience that helps students achieve college-level performance and build the resources needed to complete their goals.

Students who participated in the Learning Community are now co-facilitators and presenters of the Bridges Out of Poverty series in our community. They have presented their work at national conferences and formed a student organization, the Bridges Out of Poverty Student Union, to keep students connected to campus and moving towards degree completion.
