The William H. Thompson
Scholars Learning Community (TSLC) is a living/learning community for students
who are awarded the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation Scholarship at the University
of Nebraska Kearney (UNK). The Thompson
Learning Communities were initiated in 2008 at UNK, UNO, and UNL through a
partnership between the University of Nebraska and the Susan Thompson Buffett
Foundation; the learning communities are named in honor of William H. Thompson,
the father of Susan Thompson Buffett. Students who choose to attend UNK
become known as Thompson Scholars and automatically become part of the
While the Thompson Scholars
Learning Community Program focuses primarily on the freshmen year experience,
the TSLC Program also provides services to sophomore, junior, and senior
Thompson Scholars. The TSLC Staff offers academic support and individualized
attention to students so that they can achieve academic success, become engaged
in campus life, and graduate from college.
