The Experiential Learning Office primarly focuses on empowering students to be professionally successful through access to profitable networks, professional development skills, and meaningful community connections for post-graduation marketability, networking and employment. 

Students will have the opportunity to: (a) apply their educational competencies through experiential learning in the community; (b) deepen their understanding of course content and develop critical thinking through direct research or service based activities; and (c) access resources to enhance their professional development and skillset to become more marketable.

Community Service, though separate from experiential learning, is also acknowledged as a form of developing civic responsibility and personal growth.
