Global Living-Learning Community

The Global Living-Learning Community (Global LLC) is a transformational learning experience that links academic and residential life through an interdisciplinary theme.

These communities take learning outside of the classroom and into the residence hall. It brings practical application to students' lives through intentional programming and academic resources. 

Faculty and professional staff participate in the community through teaching courses linked to the theme and hosting social and educational events for the community both in the residence hall and off-campus. 

Students interested in living on the Global LLC floor can sign up during Room Lottery.


WHAT KINDS OF ACTIVITIES DO WE DO?

The Global LLC seeks to connect and expose residents to traditions, issues, and cultural experiences beyond their current sphere of understanding. In order to cultivate greater student engagement with diverse cultures and peoples and to broaden their global perspectives, the Global LLC provides regularly scheduled and wide-ranging opportunities for students to learn more about the world beyond our campus, including international communities in Pittsburgh.  

 Examples of past programs:

● Cultural Festivals
● Celebration of International Holidays
● Field Trips
● Films
● Global Awareness Days
● Guest Speakers
● Service Events
● and more! 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BEING INVOLVED?

● A greater sense of community through shared interests and experiences
