Learning Communities & Programs
Learning communities create a rich learning environment by emphasizing relationships and community building through small group interaction, social settings, and mentorship opportunities. There are currently three communities in the college:
- Lohman Learning Community
- Transform Lives
- Haynes Learning Community
Living Learning Programs are residential communities where students live and learn together in an on-campus dormitory.
The Future Educators Living Learning Community welcomes freshman students who major in Education in the Department of Teaching, Learning, and Culture (TLAC) or the Department of Educational Psychology (EPSY).
Members of the Future Educators Living Learning Program are a part of a community of scholars who share a common career goal – teaching. These students will take courses together, participate in engaging activities and events, and develop close relationships with faculty and staff in the college.
CEHD Trailblazers living learning community is for first generation freshman students in the college who want to experience a scholarly community, get to know their fellow first generation Aggies, engage with faculty, staff, and mentors in the College, and develop leadership skills.
Students in the program will learn skills to make the academic transition from high school to college, get academic and career mentoring, learn about what it means to be an Aggie, and attend social activities like Midnight Yell. Students will also get the opportunity to participate in volunteer and leadership development experiences.
Transformational Learning Fellows
Our program recognizes students who commit to engaging in high impact, transformative learning experiences. Student Fellows have passed various milestones while enrolled at Texas A&M University.
As a result of participation in the fellows program, students will be able to:
- Engage in purposeful learning activities to gain skills, knowledge, and competences.
- Examine and make connections across courses and co-curricular experiences.
- Exhibit the skills necessary to receive, organize, reorganize, and interpret new knowledge.
In order to provide the best student experience possible, we encourage you to get involved and interact with peers through one of our many student organizations.
- Bilingual Education Student Organization (BESO)
- Educational Psychology Student Organization (EPSO)
- Student Council for Exceptional Children (SCEC)
- Student Affiliates of School Psychology
- Undergraduate Student Council
- Freshman Leaders in Education and Human Development (FLED)
- HLKN Student Organizations
My hope is to help students to develop the skills to become lifelong learners and critical thinkers who will become leaders at Texas A&M, the United States, and around the world.
