Flexus & Virtus Living and Learning Communities 

Flexus and Virtus, two engineering living and learning communities, are specialized residential programs focused on promoting community, inclusivity, and social justice through connections to faculty and specific academic units/departments within the Clark School and in the field of engineering. Women in Engineering Program Staff, Resident Life staff and other student services staff at the University link the curricular and residential experiences in ways that create opportunities for deeper understanding and integration of classroom material. Flexus and Virtus aim to provide the resources and structure for first- and second-year engineering students to be successful through graduation, positively impacting the retention and graduation of undergraduate students in the A. James Clark School of Engineering.

We invite you to apply to Flexus and Virtus!
