Living Learning Centers (LLCs)

Each LLC has its own unique theme, history, and traditions. All of them will encourage you to explore academic, personal, and professional opportunities on and off campus. Communities include the Brian D. Jellison Living Learning Center (formerly Kelley LLC), Civic Leaders LLC, and INSPIRE LLC.

Thematic Communities

Thematic communities focus on a particular subject or topic. Some are career-oriented, while others focus on culture, recreation, or social interests. Themes include the performing arts, health sciences, and outdoor adventures.

While living in INSPIRE, Rachel Green used the learning community’s resources to create Grand Slam for Literacy, a reading program for elementary students. The IU Athletic Department and INSPIRE have since expanded the program to include two annual reading challenges. Rachel says, “Through living in the LLC and creating programs like Grand Slam for Literacy, I developed relationships with administrators and teachers around the area.”
