general learning community

A general learning community (GLC) is made up of a variety of students (freshmen, student-athletes, international students, etc.) focused on academic success.

General learning communities:

  • are located in 14 halls and on specific floors
  • are broad in scope and focused on general academic success
  • offer resources and opportunities applicable to students of all majors
  • are well suited for students confident in their ability to balance academic and social commitments
  • provide opportunities to create a theme
  • offer study group opportunities
  • offer opportunities to volunteer within the MU and Columbia communities and beyond
  • may have a few sophomores, juniors and seniors throughout the GLC

A few, such as South GLC, have FIGs nested within them, but the majority of GLCs do not contain FIGs.
