With vignette “I’ll Meet You Where You Are” by Darleny Cepin

College-going student demographics are shifting. This chapter outlines new directions for faculty-student engagement initiatives in LLCs that support non-white, first gen, transfer, older students, and veterans. Authors use data from the Assessment of Collegiate Residential Environments and Outcomes (ACREO), a multi-institutional study of residential experiences and programs, to illustrate how the literature has played out practically at three universities.

Discussion Questions

  • How are “new majority” students defined on your campus?
  • In what ways do “new majority” students participate in LLCs at your institution?
  • What is the makeup of faculty in LLCs at your institution vs. staff? (Consider: race, gender, age, first-generation status, etc.)
