Faculty Learning Communities: Participating Institutions and Their Communities and Directors

We invite you and your institution to join the FLC Consortium. For membership, you must be in the implementation or active stages of an FLC Program. There is no membership fee.

To join, email Milt Cox (coxmd@miamioh.edu) with the information similar to that in the listings below: name of your institution, FLC Program Director contact details, and the URLs for the description of your FLC Program and specific FLCs. If you do not have a Web site, send us your FLC information and we will post it for you.

The benefits for membership in this Consortium include membership in the FLC listserv, networking with other FLC members, receiving the latest information from other Programs, and learning about national FLC events, such as the 2006 FLC Institute for New FLC Developers and FLC Conferences.

We hope you will join us.


The link immediately below takes you to lists of FLCs obtained from the survey on FLCs for the Spring 2004 release Building Faculty Learning Communities, in the New Directions for Teaching and Learning series. The survey is detailed in chapter two by Laurie Richlin and Amy Essington.

Lists of Faculty Learning Communities (Microsoft Excel format)

Once there, click on the buttons at the bottom of the page to view cohort-based FLCs, topic-based FLCs, or all the FLCs.
