Learning Communities

Elizabeth Rosenthal

Director of Developmental Education/Learning Communities Coordinator

Why should I join a Learning Community when I register for classes? 
  • Connect what you learn and do in one class to what you learn and do in other classes
  • Meet other college students, build friendships, and study with enthusiastic instructors
  • Explore important and engaging issues within a supportive learning environment
  • Get connected with your college advisor, who will help keep you on track to graduation 
  • Participate in fun social events and go on class outings together

Campaign Success Learning Communities Mission Statement

Invested faculty, academic support staff, and administrators at Truman College are committed to a “Campaign of Success” that cultivates in our students a love of deep learning, a renewed sense of academic engagement, confidence, and momentum, and an attachment to the social support networks around them. 

Have other students done well in their “Learning Communities”



  • Compared to students who took regular, separated classes in Fall 2012, Learning Community students were 13% more likely to stay in class and 10% more likely to pass with a "C" or better.
