Residence Life and Housing
Living Learning Communities

A Living Learning Community or LLC is a community of students living within a residential floor or residence hall who are connected through an academic major or field of studyThe LLC is directed by a faculty or staff member who organizes educational and social activities for LLC members to bolster student engagement and academic success.  

These live-in communities foster greater interaction among students allowing for them to make friends easier and become more involved in social and learning activities. Research has shown that LLCs have proven beneficial to students who participate by enhancing their overall well-being and improving academic performance through supportive mentoring by staff, resulting in higher retention, graduation rates and GPAs.  

Eligibility to participate in an LLC and requirements are specific to the type of LLC students wish to live in. Carroll currently offers four LLC programs that include the Honors, Nursing, Social Justice Leadership and Anita Scholars.

Anita Scholars LLC

The Anita Scholars Living Learning Community (AS LLC), named after gender-based violence educator and public figure Anita Hill, is an educational and prevention-based community that will participate in a specially tailored workshop and discussion series that challenges the residents to take ownership of their voices as advocates against violence.  In order to prevent violence we need to change the way we engage women from being talked to like potential victims, to instead being empowered as agents of change.  Anita Scholars does this by building a strong foundation and command of language, phrases, and trends to be familiar with, as women talking about and fighting against gender-based violence. Conversations about how women are taught to think about intimacy and relationships are crucial to owning the way young girls are socialized at a disadvantage. After a full academic year of challenging conversations, vulnerable moments, and empowering each other, the women are left with a personally designed map for action.

As a resident of the Anita Scholar’s Living Learning Community students will be able to: Learn more about the Office of Violence Prevention

Requirements
AS LLC is looking for women who are invested in pro-social behaviors and have an appetite to not only learn more about anti-violence work but also be challenged to be critical of the systems around them. You do not have to be a social justice expert or theorist to be welcomed into this community, but it would really help to know that every member of our community is committed to the empowerment of all women. A total of 14 residents will be invited to join in this journey as a first year LLC.
 
How to Apply
Students who are interested in the AS LLC should fill out the application form. The information will be reviewed by the Anita Scholars committee and students who are selected to join will be contacted.
