Learning Community Executive Council End of the Year Remarks
Dear Learning Community Faculty, Staff, Students, and Friends, 
I want to take an opportunity in this month's Learning Community Newsletter to address the Learning Community Family. With hundreds of events being held, programming being delivered, and a handful of new Learning Communities being created... there is a LOT to talk about as we close out the year. As UConn Communications put it, the Learning Community Program is "flourishing."  
This year, I want to speak to you all about a Learning Community organization that has been developed over the last two years. This organization is the Learning Community Executive Council (LCEC).
The LCEC is a group of Learning Community student leaders that provides support and guidance to the Learning Community Program Office. Staff and students work hand in hand, thinking about the big picture as it relates to the Learning Community Program. This student - staff collaboration results in quality programming for all Learning Community students, as those on the LCEC have participated in the program as members of Learning Communities on campus.
As President of the LCEC, I have seen firsthand the impact we've had on the work done by the Learning Community Office. Since the creation of the council just two years ago, we have worked on a number of important projects from administrative initiatives to large scale events. Some of the projects that the council has done this year include: Research Connections, Learning Community Spirit Week, the end of the year survey, and the Learning Community Student Leadership Consortium, just to name a few.
This is only the beginning. As the LCEC continues to develop, our reach and scope will grow even larger and more impactful.  I ask you all; faculty, staff, and students, to use the LCEC as a resource through your journey through the Learning Community Program! From pitching an idea for your specific Learning Community to an event you'd like implemented across the Learning Community
Program, reach out to us. There are nine dedicated student leaders available to you.
I want to give a big thank you to Jennifer Murphy, the Learning Community Program Coordinator and Advisor to the LCEC. Without her support the LCEC would not have been possible. I would also like to thank all of the student leaders past and present, who have dedicated their time to work on the LCEC.
It has been an honor to work with such an incredible group of people throughout my time in Learning Communities. I look forward to hearing of all the future accomplishments of the Learning Community Program, with the help of LCEC.
