What is a Learning Community?

While college itself is a learning community, a “Learning Community” provides opportunities for students to enjoy personalized educational experiences with a group of likeminded peers.

Benefits of a Learning Community:

  • Make friends and develop close connections with fellow students, and college faculty and staff.
  • Students who participate in Learning Communities are often more engaged and satisfied with their college experience.
  • Students involved in Learning Communities show greater academic achievement, greater involvement on campus, and more motivation.

Franciscan Servant Scholars

Franciscan Servant Scholars (FSS) Program is designed for full‐time undergraduate students of all faiths and majors who seek to develop their faith and grow in service as they discern a career path. The FSS Program is rooted in Stritch’s Catholic Franciscan heritage and Values.

FSS gives students opportunities to connect their academic coursework with service to the community, work for peace and social justice, engage in theological reflection and participate in authentic openness to faith sharing. The FSS Program includes a $1,000 scholarship. Ten new freshmen are accepted to FSS annually.
