Faculty Proposal for Learning Community Form

If you would like to create a new learning community, please complete a Proposal for Learning Community form. Note: Due to the uncertainty of adjunct faculty assignments each semester, if you are an adjunct or plan to partner with an adjunct, please talk with you chair before working on a proposal. The form is a fillable PDF, so you can work on it and save the form to your computer.  Once completed, email it to your department chair for approval.  CC your teaching partner and their department chair as well so they can also approve the proposal.  Once approved, your chairs can forward their form to the Title V department (MZH-204-D) for processing.  We will work with your chairs to secure official approval, and will notify you after approval with the next steps.
