Mission & Goals

The Mayfield Living Learning Community provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of and appreciation for living in a residential learning community.  First, a community of ten students – with the help of their advisor – sets specific learning goals, articulates a plan or project for achieving those goals, documents their activities in a monthly report, and evaluates their accomplishments with the Mayfield Living Learning Community Program Coordinator in a monthly meeting.  To assist in evaluating the quality of the program, participants are expected to complete the Quality of Life Survey and other research instruments. Second, Mayfield residents are expected to participate in programs consisting of community development and/or service learning, as relevant to their needs and as directed by the Mayfield Program Coordinators.  Third, through their projects, students come to understand the meaning of membership in a residential learning community.
