The Education Learning Community (ELC) is open to incoming first-year students (freshmen) who are interested in becoming a teacher. The program is designed to foster students’ passion for teaching, provide networking opportunities, and ease the transition to university life. Students build a sense of community through the residential optional experience of living in Lynch Hall, as well as taking the required ELC seminar course together both fall and spring semester.
