President's Millennial Scholars - Cohorts
One of the key factors in learning is the impact of community—the people whom we learn with and from. Based on the importance of community in education, the cohort program came into being. Cohort programs provide an active, interactive, and dynamic setting for students to grow their knowledge and skills.
Rather than the professor-teaching-student model of traditional learning, cohort programs bring students together to build community, foster creativity, build leadership skills, and encourage greater progress. As students study together, they develop relationships—a form of learning, which transcends course material, and morphs into life skill training.
