  • Experiential learning encompasses a variety of activities including internships, community-based learning, and other creative and professional work experiences.
  • Well-planned, supervised and assessed experiential learning programs can stimulate academic inquiry by promoting interdisciplinary learning, civic engagement, career development, cultural awareness, leadership, and other professional and intellectual skills.
