The mission of the Living Learning Programs is to support the mission of the university, the Division of Student Affairs, the Department of Housing and Residence Life, and other campus partners. We are committed to developing an environment where students can be academically and socially successful, engage in a variety of developmental activities, and utilize additional support services within our residential communities.
Specific programs include:
Living Learning Communities, referred to as LLCs, are specific first year residential communities that are designed to connect students with academic resources for their respective major, college, or department. Specific programs and events are often created for each of these communities that encourage student growth and development outside of the traditional classroom setting.
Themed Community options are residential communities that are based on a specific themed group or interest.
For questions regarding the general housing application, payment information, etc., please contact our department directly at (386) 323-8000 or you may go directly to the application at dbhousing.erau.edu.
Select Embry-Riddle faculty members reside within the residential community and work closely with our staff to provide academic support programs through weekly tutoring sessions and academic based programs. These programs may be within the faculty-in-residences’ field of study or topics of special interests (sports, hobbies, etc).
Currently, our Faculty in Residence is Dr. Matt Haffner. Dr. Matt Haffner joined the Embry-Riddle College of Arts and Sciences faculty this year in Physical Sciences. This year he is teaching courses in Astronomy and continues his very active research program, which is centered around a remotely-operated telescope in Chile. As this year’s Faculty-in-Residence, he lives on-campus in a residence hall and holds several tutoring sessions each week in dorm study spaces. He offers students a wide range of help in astronomy, physics, math, and computer programming.
Faculty members volunteer to participate in activities outside of the classroom setting such as exam tutoring and other programs focusing on students’ future careers. Our department also offers computer labs and study areas that students can utilize.
