Living Learning Communities, in the Department of Sociology & Criminology


In 2020-2021, the department created two Living Learning Communities (LLCs) to serve incoming First Time, First Year students, one focusing on Criminology  and the other (a partnership with the Political Science Department) focusing on Citizenship & Social Justice.  The mission of our LLCs is to engage students through coursework and programming on timely topics related to Crime & the Criminal Justice system, as well as Citizenship & Social Justice. 

In 2021-2021, we will host the following LLCs
