Mission Statement for BHCC Learning Communities

Bunker Hill Community College's learning communities provide learning environments which maximize potential for academic and personal growth for both students and faculty and which prepare students to work effectively in collaborative work environments. These learning communities promote increased student success by:

  1. Providing student-centered environments which address multiple learning styles
  2. Encouraging collaborative learning which develops integrative thinking skills
  3. Fostering connections among students, faculty and staff
  4. Helping students to become responsible, actively engaged learners
  5. Teaching students to identify and access sources of support
  6. Encouraging vibrant teaching partnerships which promote richer and more flexible pedagogies and teaching practices
  7. Enabling faculty to build connections among disciplines and create more engaged classrooms
  8. Fostering increased conversation among faculty beyond the learning communities
  9. Incorporating ongoing assessment which is responsive to the evolving needs of these learning communities
