Collaborative Learning

What It Is

The collaborative learning program offers weekly sessions in which small groups of students work together on homework for their classes. Collaborative learning resource leaders, upper-class students who have excelled in the relevant course, monitor the sessions, encourage problem-solving and collaboration among group members, and answer questions when necessary. Students use this group study to complete homework in a more structured setting. The program is open to all first year students and sessions are offered in mathematics and the sciences.

Enrollment and Attendance Policy

Enrollment is required to attend collaborative learning sessions, although students may un-enroll at any point during the semester. While enrolled, participants are expected to attend all sessions; we believe that your consistent participation is beneficial both to you and to the other students in the program. If you are unable to attend a session, email LRC at to obtain an excused absence. In order to maintain the balance and effectiveness of the group, three unexcused absences will result in dismissal, although you may re-enroll if space is available.
