Experiential Learning

Critical and creative thinking involves not only knowledge, but the process of applying that knowledge to various situations. Our academic programs are supported by a variety of experiential programs designed to engage students in learning beyond the classroom and provide them with opportunities to apply their knowledge in real-life situations.

These programs offer meaningful, hands-on experiences that allow for trial and error and empower students to tackle new challenges. Through these experiences, our students gain awareness of other cultures; develop leadership and teamwork skills; learn to care for others, their community and their environment; and become open to new experiences. They learn a lot about themselves and each other, gain confidence in their abilities, and develop a level of emotional and moral intelligence that simply cannot be taught in a classroom.
