YorkU Residence Life pilots two learning communities on sustainability, well-being


York University’s Residence Life Department has launched two new Living Learning Communities (LLCs) pilots focused on the themes of sustainability and well-being, respectively. These LLCs each bring 35 residents together to learn about specific topics or themes outside of the classroom. Over the next eight months, members of these two LLCs will attend workshops and events related to their topic of choice with the goals of fostering connections between residents and engaging in immersive learning. “Ultimately, experiencing a sense of community helps people hold themselves accountable for their actions and decisions, academics and a lot more, which I believe is important while living alone,” said sustainability LLC student leader Ramisa Mustafa, adding that participating in the initiative will support her growth “as an individual and allow more room for holistic knowledge acquisition.”
