    Communities of Interest

  • What are Communities of Interest?Communities of Interest (COI) represent a network of students with similar academic interests and career goals. Learning experiences and initiatives within the COI framework will:

    n promote student engagement and development

    n enhance program persistence resulting in completion of a certificate or degree

    n promote global citizenship and lifelong learning

    COIs aim to provide structured, intentional, and meaningful experiences around academic support, social engagement, and workforce readiness. In general terms, COI activities would be:

    n delivered in response to significant known and emerging barriers to student success

    n supported by data and applied research

    n purposefully designed for students across all campuses and not just for students who seek them out

    n connected to Shark Path

    n developed to help foster a sense of purpose

    “We must be intentional, proactive and intrusive.

    Student success does not arise by chance.”

    (Tinto, 2006)

    “ The findings from 20 years of research on under-

    graduate education have been unequivocal: The

    more actively engaged students are – with college

    faculty and staff, with other students and with the

    subject matter they study – the more likely they are

    to learn, to stick with their studies and to attain their

    academic goals.”

    (McClenney, 2012)
