Global Leadership

The Global Leadership Living Learning Community is an interdisciplinary program open to first-year residential students with an interest in leadership in the modern, global environment. Participants will learn to become global citizens through a focus on the development of intercultural competency, awareness of the interconnectedness of the global community, activism, and social justice. Residents in this living learning community will seek meaning through common course work, intentional living, and experiential learning.


The Merrimack College Honors Program offers two Living Learning Communities - one for first year students, and one for upperclassmen. These communities were established so that honors students can immediately become part of a community of learners and leaders. Inspired by St. Augustine, the Honors Program believes that students learn best in the company of friends, and can become leaders while engaged in all of the social and co-curricular opportunities that arise while living together with a common purpose.

The Innovation Through Engineering and Computing (iTEC) Living Learning Community is designed to help first year students thrive in engineering and computer science majors at Merrimack college. As part of this living learning community, students will be part of a supportive environment, living among peers who are engineering and computer science majors, attend specialized workshops and seminars, have free access to tutoring and review sessions, and participate in professional skill building sessions and many engaging social activities. All first year engineering and computer science students will be enrolled in the LLC, unless they specifically opt out.
