Future Teachers Learning Community

On the Texas Tech campus, a Learning Community houses a group of students on one or more floors of a residence hall with an academic unit focus such as health sciences, architecture, fine arts or a common interest such as first year experience. All share a common goal of creating an educational environment that brings educators and students together to enhance student learning.

The College of Education supports the Future Teachers Learning Community located on the second and third floors of the Hulen dormitory. The Future Teachers Learning Community is open to all students who are interested in pursuing teacher certification.
