Living and Learning

HLLC is a living learning community located in Governors Hall on the east wing of the 3rd and 4th floors.

Community members enroll in HMNG130 (Hmong American Experiences in the U.S.) along with a designated paired course.  They will have the opportunity to take additional courses leading to completion of the Critical Hmong Studies Certificate and are encouraged to participate in immersion experiences involving the Hmong culture as they become available. 


For additional support or information about the Hmong Living Learning Community (HLLC), contact LLC coordinator, Sia Yang.
