CHE's Learning Community

CHE participants take linked coursework with their cohort peers; most students will take English 122, ET 100, and UNIV 100 during their fall semester. In the spring semester, most will take English 123 and Library 123 together. These linked courses allow students to become familiar with their peers. In addition, each course is structure to allow for maximum individual attention from the course instructors. The CHE learning community includes:

  • Courses with a student-to-teacher ratio of 15-20 students per one educator
  • Structure allows for more one-on-one time for students
  • Instructors regularly communicate how best to support the student's success
  • CHE-taught courses are specially designed and reserved for CHE participants and are taught by
    faculty in CHE (ENG 122/123 and ET 100), University College (UNIV 101), and University Libraries (LIB 123)
