Experiential Learning Collaborative
The Collaborative brings together the unit directors in Civic and Social Responsibility; Office of First Year Experience; Student Involvement and Leadership Center; Study Abroad & International Programs; University Career Services; and Undergraduate Research with the goal to develop, expand and promote Experiential Learning on the campus.
Experiential learning denotes a rigorous learning experience, occurring within a community setting (e.g., professional, artistic, scientific, scholarly, local) and integrated as part of an academic degree program, which requires the student to take an active role in the learning process. The Collaborative will develop an experiential learning clearinghouse, overseeing assessment of these experiences, and creating a tracking system for students completing these experiences. The Collaborative also oversees the majority of the undergraduate certification programs on campus.
