The Cohort Experence
From the start of the program each autumn, a group of 12-16 students begin a shared journey through the program. Students take the same sequence of courses, share faculty advisors, participate in the same face-to-face intensives (Advances), engage one another around course topics online throughout the academic year, and, finally, graduate together. We call these intentional learning communities "cohorts".
They create a rich "vibrant we" peer-learning experience to "Be Known".
Mary Pandiani, a Doctor of Ministry in Leadership and Global Perspectives student, spoke with us about her experience of learning in community.
