The LLC Program at Queen’s has a two-fold approach. “LLP” (Living Learning Program) refers to the program as a whole, meaning each student who is part of one of our six “LLC” (Living Learning Co m m unities). LLP Workshops are run every month except for December and April. All of the LLCs come together to do a variety of activities as a group. This element has been developed based on feedback from past LLC members who have shown an interest of getting to know and learn with other LLC members outside of their own LLC. Over the past two years the Living Learning Program has grown at a healthy and consistent rate. This growth has given us the ability to offer further opportunities through the introduction of the Living Learning Leadership Certificate. This certificate encourages students’ development academically, individually and as leaders in the Queen’s community.

The Living Learning Leadership Certificate was developed using Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner’s The Five Practices o f Exem p lary Lead ership Model and Alfred Lizzio’s Stud ent Life Cycle: 5 Sense o f Success. The goals of this certificate aim to... … provide opportunities for LLC students to continue to develop personally and as leaders; … build a sense of ownership and responsibility within the various communities students belong to through experiential opportunities; … network and build relationships within peers, faculty and staff at Queen’s

* More detailed information on the Living Learning Leadership Certificate will be available on the Queen’s Residence Life webpage in the summer of 2017.
