A global leadership Living Learning Community
Faculty Advisors: Dr. Joe Tadie, Philosophy, and Dr. Kyle Black, Modern and Classical Languages
This Living Learning Community welcomes students who are interested in issues related to sports on both the local and global levels. Both in and out of the classroom, learners will explore the fundamental aspects of sports, especially the realm of camaraderie and enthusiastic devotion. At the same time, they will be exposed to interdisciplinary thinking (sociology, economics, theology, etc.). We’ll use sports as a starting point for developing the core academic skills that lead to both college and professional success. Programming will relate to academic success, personal health and wellness, identity, teamwork, critical thinking, and global consciousness.
Activities may include:
- Taking off-campus trips to matches and other events.
- Participating in a film club/series.
- Completing community service projects with area organizations.
- Hosting weekly soccer events with community youth.
