Experiential Education Center

Experiential education is a form of hands-on learning that allows students to apply classroom concepts to real-world situations. By engaging in opportunities like Service-Learning and Internships, students are able to participate in career exploration, community-based initiatives, as well as expand their professional network and skills, preparing them to lead in an ever-changing world.
