Global Learning Living Community

The Global Learning Living Community (GLLC) is a unique community which brings together U.S. and international students to live and learn from one another’s unique perspectives. Members of the GLLC are student leaders on campus for global education. Students live together at 225 Stonemill, part of Caldwell Apartments, in an environment which supports and nurtures students’ international and intercultural interests.

The Global LLC seeks to:

  • develop intercultural competence and sensitivity among residents;
  • educate residents for global citizenship; and
  • help residents develop relationships with friends from different cultural backgrounds.

Interested students are encouraged to email gllc@udayton.edu

An information session will be in in January in Kennedy Union.  Please visit this web site again for more details regarding date, time and location.  

Expectations

Members of the Global LLC agree to:

  • Serve as a student leader for internationalization and intercultural dialogue on campus. This may be done by leading programming in the Global LLC and/or leadership in other intercultural opportunities on campus.
  • Attend the fall off-campus retreat in September, and the off-campus retreat in January/early February.
  • Actively participate in GLLC programming and events, attending at least two programs each semester (not inclusive of the orientation and welcome day).

Eligibility

This housing opportunity is open to:

  1. U.S. and international sophomores*, juniors and seniors;
  2. conditionally admitted undergraduates and IEP only, ages 20-25; and
  3. exchange and visiting international students, ages 20-25.

Students may apply as a single individual or as a group of two or four students. Sophomores, juniors and seniors may apply for the GLLC. (Caldwell Street Apartments is for juniors and seniors only, with the exception of sophomores living in the GLLC for the 2014-2015 academic year.)  All members must be and remain in good university academic and disciplinary standing.

Students studying abroad in the first semester who are interested in living in the GLLC for the second semester may be put on a waiting list for the second semester by emailing gllc@udayton.edu. These requests must be in writing.

Application Instructions

The GLLC is considered Special Interest Housing at the University of Dayton. Students complete a three-step application process as part of Special Interest Housing/Global LLC Process:

  1. Each student must submit the GLLC Application by January 31, 2014.
  2. Complete the online  2014-2015 Housing Application (Application opens January 21, 2014 and closes January 31, 2014).
  3. If you are applying as a group of two or four, your group must complete the online Roommate Group step included in the housing application. The Roommate Group name must begin with GLLC, then followed by the Group Leader’s name (for example, GLLC – John Doe).

All forms and applications listed above must be completed and submitted no later than January 31, 2014 at 4:30 pm.

Please note the following:

  • Students will only be able to participate in one lottery/process at a time. Students will need to determine which community they want to live in and participate in that lottery only.
     
  • Careful thought should be given to the essay questions provided in the GLLC Application Form. Decisions on acceptance to the GLLC will be made based on these essays, in addition to GPA, discipline background and overall expressed interest and commitment to intercultural learning. 
  • Some students may be asked to interview as part of the application process, depending on demand and housing committee deliberations.

All applicants will be notified no later than February 28, 2014. Thus, students who are not successful in obtaining a Global LLC apartment can still participate in the general student lottery process.
