Warner College offers two Residential Learning Communities (RLCs)

Warner RLCs support student leadership development in natural resources, sustainability, and outdoors leadership, connecting academic and social learning within the residence hall setting with the goal of an enriched experience for all participants.

Warner RLC students participate in professional development experiences to expand their knowledge and skills and take part in service-learning and career exploration in their chosen fields of study. The program offers linked enrollment to special sections of CO 150 focused on natural resource food, energy, and water issues.

Warner RLC experiences include a common reading, early move-in privileges in Summit Hall, and programming at the CSU Environmental Learning Center. In fall, students take part in a weekend leadership retreat, and in spring, they participate in the Banff Mountain Film Festival at CSU.
