GLOBAL LIVING LEARNING COMMUNITY

About the Community

The Global LLC will promote international opportunities to domestic students and provide incoming international exchange students the opportunity to get to know more about the U.S. and Aggie cultures. This community will pair domestic A&M students with international exchange students who study at Texas A&M for one or two semesters.

The Global LLC aims to bring together U.S. and international students for cross cultural learning and understanding through shared experiences to prepare all students for success in our increasingly global society.

To participate in the Global Living Learning Community, students must:

  1. Live on-campus in the community building
  2. Returning A&M students (U2 or above) preferred
  3. Minimum 2.5 GPA

Program Components

The community will offer globally focused activities each month, both on campus and in the surrounding area. Examples of programs include: welcome event and dinner, culture shock round-table, movie night, attending World Fest, end of semester farewell event, and more.
Our intent in the Global LLC is to benefit students in the following ways:

  1. Students will be more open-minded to new experiences and new cultures and show a curiosity for global issues.
  2. Students will seek to understand how to understand how their actions affect both local and global communities.
  3. Students will be able to identify how cultural benefits influence behaviors and practices at the individual and societal levels.
  4. Students will be able to reflect on similarities, differences, and intersections between their own and others’ cultures.
Provides support for international students and encourages cross-cultural interactions for domestic students. Community support is fostered through formal and informal one-on-one and group activities.
