Experiential learning is a cornerstone of all undergraduate programs in the College of Education because we are dedicated to graduating students who can apply their classroom knowledge to the multitude of dilemmas facing children, families, schools and society.  

At its core, experiential education is the idea that experience is central to the educational process.  The College of Education believes that engaging in experiential learning enhances the educational experience of our students, while providing a valuable service to the surrounding community. 

In addition to the community-based requirements in our degree programs, the College of Education supports additional opportunities for undergraduates to engage in experiential learning, including community service and collaborative research.
