CULTIVATING A COMMUNITY OF LEARNERS
Flex Schedule and Workshop Descriptions
Flex Facts
What is a community? It is a group of people focused on sharing
resources in their environment. At a community college our shared resources
include knowledge, skills, support, and the respect and pride necessary to
encourage mental and emotional growth. Members of a community develop
emotional bonds as their individual intellectual skills are cultivated in response to
their interactions with one another. Students, classified staff, faculty, and
administrators all have critical pieces to contribute to this process, enabling us to
become a true community of learners.
Adinkra symbols are widely used throughout West Africa. The symbol on
our front cover, BOA ME NA ME MMOA WO, means “help me and let me help
you.” This symbol of cooperation and interdependence well represents the spirit
of a community of learners.
