Global Learning Living Community, 2014-15
The Global Learning Living Community is a unique community which brings together U.S. and international students to live and learn from one another’s unique perspectives. Members of the GLLC are student leaders on campus for global education. Students live together at 225 Stonemill, part of Caldwell Apartments, in an environment which supports and nurtures students’ international and intercultural interests.
The GLLC seeks to:
- develop intercultural competence and sensitivity among residents;
- educate residents for global citizenship; and
- help residents develop relationships with friends from different cultural backgrounds.
Interested students are encouraged to email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
An information session will be held on Thursday, January 23 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in Kennedy Union, Room 310. Light refreshments will be provided.
Members of the GLLC agree to:
- Serve as a student leader for internationalization and intercultural dialogue on campus. This may be done by leading programming in the GLLC and/or leadership in other intercultural opportunities on campus.
- Attend the fall off-campus retreat in September, and another off-campus retreat in late January/early February.
- Actively participate in GLLC programming and events, attending at least two programs each semester (in addition to orientation and welcome day).
This housing opportunity is open to:
- U.S. and international sophomores*, juniors and seniors;
- conditionally admitted undergraduates and IEP only, ages 20-25; and
- exchange and visiting international students, ages 20-25.
Students may apply as a single individual or as a group of two or four students. Sophomores, juniors and seniors may apply for the GLLC. (Caldwell Street Apartments is for juniors and seniors only, with the exception of sophomores living in the GLLC for the 2014-2015 academic year.) All members must be and remain in good university academic and disciplinary standing.
Students studying abroad in the first semester who are interested in living in the GLLC for the second semester may be put on a waiting list for the second semester by emailing email@example.com. These requests must be in writing.
The GLLC is considered Special Interest Housing at the University of Dayton. Students complete a three-step application process as part of Special Interest Housing/GLLC Process:
- Submit the GLLC Application by January 31, 2014.
- Complete the online 2014-2015 Housing Application (available starting January 15, 2014, and closes January 31, 2014).
- If you are applying as a group of two or four, your group must complete the online Roommate Group step included in the housing application. The Roommate Group name must begin with GLLC, then followed by the Group Leader’s name (for example, GLLC – John Doe).
All forms and applications previously listed must be completed and submitted by January 31, 2014, at 4:30 p.m.
Please note the following:
- Students will only be able to participate in one lottery/process at a time. Students will need to determine which community they want to live in and participate in that lottery only.
- Careful thought should be given to the essay questions provided in the GLLC Application Form. Decisions on acceptance to the GLLC will be made based on these essays, in addition to GPA, discipline background and overall expressed interest and commitment to intercultural learning.
- Some students may be asked to interview as part of the application process, depending on demand and housing committee deliberations.
- All applicants will be notified no later than February 28, 2014. Thus, students who are not successful in obtaining a GLLC apartment can still participate in the general student lottery process.
