Description/Abstract

The Learning Environment and Academic Research Network (L.E.A.R.N.) is a living-learning, research-based community established in fall 2011 at the University of Central Florida. The program aims to increase retention in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines by identifying at-risk first-year students and providing opportunities for them to live in a learning community, take courses together, and become a research apprentice in a laboratory setting. L.E.A.R.N. is sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research and the National Science Foundation, in collaboration with Housing and Residence Life.
