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:

Living Learning Programs are residential communities where students live and learn together in an on-campus dormitory.

Future Educators

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

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.

First Gen Network

30% of current CEHD students are first generation students.

Byrne Center Director Kelley O’Neal is leading efforts to  support first generation students in the college.
