What is experiential learning?
Experiential learning involves a cycle of engagement and reflection in which you learn by reflecting on the process of applying your learning, or doing. Undergraduate research and creative work is one of the many ways to engage in experiential learning on campus and beyond. Internships, community service and other activities develop skills valuable to employers from communication to time-management. These activities can also help you discover new interests and refine career plans while connecting you with supportive networks that can guide and enable.
