About our learning communities
Norcia Leadership Community
Designed to pair Saint Martin’s emerging student leaders with first-year students committed to following in their footsteps, the Norcia Leadership Community will feature:
- Mentoring relationships with established leaders.
- Leadership oriented activities, community development projects, and programming.
- Weekly community dinners.
- Participate in annual service projects and retreats.
First-year students who apply and are selected to live on the floor will be assigned to single or double occupancy rooms in three-person to four-person suites with a shared bathroom. They will be matched with student mentors also living on the floor who have demonstrated their commitment to leadership and academic achievement at Saint Martin’s and wish to nurture leadership potential in other students.
Oikos Residential Learning Community
Greek for ‘home’, Oikos (pronounced EE-koss) is the theme of Saint Martin’s residential learning community (RLC), in which first-year students share both a UNI 101 class and a floor environment. At Saint Martin’s the values of service and stewardship are integral features of the community, as students are encouraged to serve others and empowered to take personal responsibility for the place that they call home and their experience of it. Accordingly, the Oikos RLC is a living laboratory for residents who are interested in expanding their understanding of sustainability through in-class learning and practical application through service on and off the floor.
With the theme of “home” resonating through coursework, service, and out-of-the-classroom experiences, the Oikos residential learning community will help residents develop sustainability literacy that can be practiced throughout their lives, both as members of the floor community and as local and global citizens. A partnership between the First-Year Seminar (UNI 101) program and the Office of Residence Life, the Oikos residential learning community brings the classroom into the halls and the floor community into the classrooms.
Going Global Residential Learning Community
In the spirit of Saint Ambrose, the patron saint of beehives, Saint Martin’s Global Residential Learning Community (RLC) as it reflects the beehive community balance of togetherness, individual exploration, and contribution to one another.
Students share First-Year Seminar, English 102 and a floor environment together, and encouraged to venture out via study abroad to gather new worldly insights and then return to our Saint Martin’s home to share the wealth of global knowledge they have gathered while abroad.
The values of community and respect for persons are integral features on the Saint Martin’s campus. This learning community aims to highlight these values as students learn about global issues and the art of mindful international travel. The intention is broadening both the self and their community.
Through this process, students will be encouraged to discover, learn and serve people from other cultures and countries and how this enriches their own social group. Accordingly, the Going Global RLC is a living space for residents who are interested in expanding their understanding of worldly cultures and preparing for journey of study abroad, on and off the floor.
We are committed to providing accessible housing for students — and provide it at an equitable rate. Generally, cost may be adjusted according to the room’s price before the accommodation was made. For example, if the accommodation requires a single room, the individual may be housed alone in a double room space, and be charged for a double.
In order to have a successful understanding of the necessary accommodations, please be prepared to present a recent evaluation conducted by a qualified professional that describes your disability and supports the need for the specific accommodations you are requesting.
