The Farm to Table Learning Community at UCCS is tailored to students interested in nutrition and health. It intends to foster a supportive environment for students to navigate the college experience together, build a support network, and make lasting friendships.

During class sessions:

  • students will focus on how food is grown and the ways in which it is consumed.
  • students will learn the impact of healthy food choices on their lives.

Outside of class:

  • students will have plenty of opportunities to engage in social activities and professional development events tailored to enhance their career readiness.

Learning Community Coach:
Each of our learning communities has a Learning Community Coach (LCC) - a student who shares a similar interest (in this case, an interest in nutrition and health), who has successfully navigated their first year at UCCS. LCC's attend the Gateway Program Seminar (GPS) class every week and meet with students individually and in groups outside of class. LCC's help connect students with instructors, resources, and opportunities to get the most out of their college experience.
