Experiential Learning is recognized as one of the most important goals and challenges for higher education as college students face a rapidly changing and increasingly connected world where applying knowledge-to-practice becomes not just a benefit...but a necessity. While significant knowledge for general education and within each major serves as the foundation, experiential learning integrates theory with real life.

As a result, experiential learning supports student growth as a confident, lifelong learner capable of adapting one's intellectual skills, contributing in a wide variety of situations, and applying one’s academic studies to making a positive difference in the world. Developing student capacity for integrative learning through experiential learning opportunities is central to personal success, social responsibility, and civic engagement in today’s global society.
