First Year Experience
King Chavez learning community at UW-Whitewater


This learning community engages freshman scholars in their personal and academic development.

The King/Chávez Learning Community is a core group of King/Chávez Scholars who live in the residence halls together, take courses together, and participate in a variety of community building activities. The King/Chávez Scholars learning community promotes academic and cultural development as well as positive networking skills. Scholars engage in a variety of activities including trips to Chicago, attending theatrical events, group study nights and other exciting programs. Our scholars most enjoy the family-like foundation that the support of the learning community provides, which eases the transition from high school to college and provides scholars the opportunity to create lifelong bonds and friendships.
