We all learn in different ways and come to college with a range of life experiences, responsibilities and academic preparation. Our services are ever evolving to reflect student, staff and faculty feedback as well as theories of student learning and student development.
First year experience programs not only influence academic success, but they also drive emotional support and connections that are key to student success as a whole throughout a college education.
Co-ops are closely supervised internships or practicums which brings work experience into a learner’s academic program.
Learning communities are groups of learners who share common academic goals and work closely together in varying ways, whether it’s taking multiple courses together as a cohort, living in the same locations, or participating in the same general academic activities.
Spanning everything from a thesis to a performance to an art exhibit, capstones are culminating experiences, usually in senior year, that bring together the full wealth of a learner’s experiences.
Learners connect course concepts to real world immersive activities through community engagement, developing perspectives and strategies in applying their skills and knowledge to the world.
