The 2012 LCL Mission Statement:
As Learning Community Liaisons, our goal is to promote a smooth transition and positive experience for students in the Learning Community Program.
We employ the following by providing:
• Knowledge of academic and social resources.
• Insights through our personal experiences.
• Communication between students and FAU.
By mentoring, we unite and empower the Learning Community students through leadership, support, guidance, and friendship.
What is the Learning Community Liaison Program?
LCLs are a group of past learning community students who volunteer their time to provide mentorship and peer support to freshmen who are entering the learning community program for the upcoming semester. The LC Liaisons are all alumni of one of FAU’s past Learning Communities; this is especially beneficial for major-based LC’s!
In addition, LC Liaisons provide support to students who are academically at-risk and to help those students have a better knowledge and awareness of on-campus resources, and the faculty and staff members who are willing to assist them.
Who are Learning Community Liaisons?
An FAU Learning Community Liaison (aka. LCL) is a student volunteer who provides support to students that are part of the learning community program. The LCL’s work throughout the year to help Learning Community students have a better knowledge and awareness of on-campus resources, and faculty and staff members who are willing to assist them.
In addition, FAU LCL’s:
*Provide support and encouragement to FAU students,
*Assist students with reading/study skills, writing skills, time management, and adjusting to college life, and
*Form an important link between students and FAU, helping students utilize the many resources available from other campus programs and departments.
Benefits of Becoming a Learning Community Liaison...
*Help FAU freshmen become successful
*Allows you to meet new people
*Share experiences and offer support
*An opportunity to work closely with other students and other FAU departments
*Helps you gain an appreciation for diversity
