The Leadership Living Learning Community (L3C) is an internationally award-winning Academic Living Learning Community centered in learning more about the relational aspects of leadership and the concepts of self and community. It is open to all majors on-campus.
The community focuses on:
- exposing students to theoretically based concepts of leadership, including a relational leadership model centered in building inclusive community, a set of skills needed in an ever more connected world,
- challenging freshmen to be increasingly global-oriented,
- stretching students in their development of self and others, and
- living Texas A&M University’s core purpose of developing leaders of character dedicated to serving the greater good.
In addition, students in the program are welcome to apply to continue with the program in their sophomore year as L3C Peer Mentors. This allows for an increased understanding of leadership through practice. L3C Peer Mentors complete a three semester credit hour curricular course in leadership education (ALED 340 – Survey Leadership Theory) in the fall semester and a three-four semester credit hour curricular directed study course in the spring semester. Many decide to earn a university minor in leadership while completing their role as L3C Peer Mentors.
