Bridging Divides Living Learning Community (LLC)
The Bridging Divides Living Learning Community is a new community for 2017-2018. Recognizing the many ways people are divided from one another, this community of first-year students will develop their ability to bridge these divides and heal the wounds of our world.
With men living together in Brady Hall and women in Dowling Hall, LLC residents will explore human rights, social justice, peacebuilding and questions about the meaning of life through an interreligious perspective. Students will connect classroom learning to life outside of studies, all in pursuit of justice to promote a more peaceful world. We will embrace the quest for meaning and living a meaningful life through being the change we want to see in the world through engagement with guest speakers, field trips, community service, dialogue experiences, and other co-curricular events fitting our LLC.
Students living in the Bridging Divides Living Learning Community will have a roommate community, live on a floor with other LLC residents, and take paired courses in Justice and Peace Studies (JPST 250, which fulfills the Human Diversity requirement) and a special Muslim-Christian dialogue section of the Christian Theological Traditions course (THEO 101, which is required of all undergraduates).
This community is open to all majors and students of any relationship to any religious tradition and those who affiliate with no religious tradition. Apply for this exciting new living option when you complete your Housing Preferences in the Spring.
