*** The following information is for the 2014-2015 academic year and is for reference purposes only. It will be updated during late first semester for the 2015-2016 academic year. ***

Each year the Living and Learning Communities are asked to submit a charter to the Living and Learning Council. These charters include a statement of purpose, member statements, and a schedule of proposed service opportunities and educational programs for the coming year.

The charter for each group is reviewed by their peers, members of the Living and Learning Selection Committee and the Office of Residence Life before being accepted. These charters serve as the guidelines for each community's activities for the school year.

The 2014-2015 Charter Proposal (Word Document) is now available. However, it is important to note that any proposals submitted by any group(s) that do not follow the time line (beginning with the mandatory information sessions) may be discarded and not considered for acceptance during the selection process.
