A community of engaged leaders

Atkins Living-Learning Center (LLC) builds and encourages academic excellence through the study and expression of African American history and culture, as well as through the development of leadership that fosters strong community building, intellectual and social growth, and an ethic of care.

Our students are engaged and regularly contribute to the Atkins community. To create this sense of home away from home, our activities include academic workshops, mentoring meetings, village-wide meetings to address needs, study tables, leadership training, and other programming.
